Plain h ttp://riscos.info has never worked for me, and it still doesn't even now. Presumably an ISP issue. My ISP is Zen Internet. My own web site (simon-smith.org) has always worked with or without the www, as do several other sites I frequent, so I'd assumed riscos.info was failing due to a config oversight. I will try from another ISP (ntlworld/Virgin, I think) when I next get the opportunity. But I'm surprised I've never experimented with both combinations from there, and if I had I'd certainly have noticed if I got the same behaviour as you do. Update to follow in a few days.

Actually I figured out that it is a Firefox browser feature to prefix the URL with www. when the given domainname does not exist. I suppose riscos.info could be supported by DNS reconfiguration but that's something for Peter to do. [[User:Joty|joty]] 13:57, 21 July 2007 (BST)

Given that NetSurf now supports CSS, and I can successfully view and edit pages with it, can this page be updated to reflect that? It appears to be locked.

Technical Issues with riscos.info

Is this the right place to talk about technical issues with this website?

If so - how come the time given for contributions seems to be out? For instance, as I right this it's 22:32 GMT on the 3rd but the time according to riscos.info is: Adamr 00:21, 4 Feb 2007 (GMT)

riscos.info/www.riscos.info

riscos.info seems to refer to itself throughout as riscos.info. However, 'riscos.info' doesn't work - you need to use 'www.riscos.info'. It would be a slight usability improvement if either URL worked. Could this minor change be made, please? Simon Smith 16:21, 20 July 2007 (BST)


What test are you doing in order to reach for the conclusion "'riscos.info' doesn't work" ? As all 'riscos.info' URLs get automatically redirected to 'www.riscos.info' and do work. joty 18:42, 20 July 2007 (BST)
