"Waiting for available connection" status message

Hi,

I'm seeing the message "Waiting for available connection" in OW5's the
status bar more and more often recently when trying to load a new page.

Though this is probably not an OmniWeb problem, does this message give
any indication as to where the problem actually lies or, what it means
specifically? It often shows 2 to 6 seconds before loading the page
actually starts.

I am connected via a Router/Firewall to the net via DSL.

Regards, Christian.

Further Experimenting with the Cache

We've been discussing the problem of OmniWeb showing older versions of 
pages. Here's my latest finding:

I'll have a page open and I click on a link. When I press the Back 
button, I see an older version. If I hit Reload, it does what is 
expected. When I go Forward and Back again, once again I see the older 
version.

Perhaps it's not a problem in the cache so much as a problem in pages 
that are still being held in their rendered form.

P.S. This message was sent again due to the content type filter on this 
mailing list. If you need my Public Key, please ask me to email you 
directly.

Making Omniweb the default in Panther

Hi,

I want to make Omniweb the default browser for embedded links in other apps
(Eudora, Word, etc.). This question is answered in FAQs but the answer
given there does not apply to Panther. Mac Help is of no use whatever: It
only tells how to make Safari the default browser from within the Safari
app.

Thanks in advance,
susan

Amazingly, you make OW the default browser the same way, from within 
Safari's preferences.

Re: Making Omniweb the default in Panther

If you go to OmniWeb general preferences (in OW5 beta 5),
there is a choice to set your default browser. So I'm guessing
you mean in OW4.5.

You can do it from Safari as directed (open Safari, open preferences).
For Default Web browser, choose OmniWeb. You may have to select it.

The newer version of OmniWeb has that setting built-in.

Re: OmniWeb 5.0 beta 6

The latest beta disregards my current license info - is that expected?

problem with mis-configured RDF feed

	As a regular reader of MacOSXHints.com I have been subscribing to 
their RDF (think RSS) feed for a while, and when OmniWeb become a RSS 
reader, moved my subscription over.
	Recently I have been having problems with mr RSS feeds, they will 
sometimes stop updating on the regular hourly schedule. Quitting 
OMniWeb and coming back in has always solved it. But I have rarely been 
getting notifications for MacOSXHints.com. Today I finally troubleshot 
the issue, and it turns out that OmniWeb is choking on a text encoding 
issue on their RDF feed. They are declaring themselves to be UTF-8, but 
it does not look like that is true.
	I have already sent in my report to MacOSXHints, but this might be a 
nice place to harden OmniWeb so that it does not gum up the works.

PS... SubEthaEdit and TextEdit both refuse to open the file, so it 
might be something in Apple's frameworks.

Re: OW 4.5sp32 hangs Asante router Administration

Hi Scott,

Here's some good news.

Nearly a year ago I reported that OmniWeb 4.5 was unable to access the 
browser-based administration feature of my Asanté FR3004LC router.  
Since then, I have been using Safari for router configuration.

It just occurred to me to try OmniWeb 5.0b6 with my router.  I'm 
pleased to report that it works fine.

Re: problem with mis-configured RDF feed

	I have talked to Rob Griffiths over at MacOSXHints.com, and done a 
little more troubleshooting. Unfortunately it looks like it is going to 
be a bit of work getting the site into conformance so that this can 
work completely.
	The problem is that GeekLog (the engine he is using) seems to play 
fast and loose with the encoding, and so in one spot it says that the 
encoding is one thing, and in another it says something different, 
without actually modifying the content. For most text this is not a 
problem, but the moment you have a higher-byte character this plays 
havoc with the XML parsers that are used to read the RDF feed.
	When I get some time I am going to try and help him clean up his site 
some and get everything moved over to UFT-8 (hmm... 
multilingual-capable goodness....). I might even try and get my changes 
back-ported to Geeklog (assuming they haven't corrected things in the 
mean time). The biggest issue is going to be converting all of the 
submissions that are already in the database from the curent Windows 
Latin 1/iso-8859-1 format into UTF-8. I think that there might be an 
encoding command in MySQL that I can use, but need to look into it.

	 If anyone has already seen this done for Geeklog, would you give me a 
heads up. I found a few people having the same issues over on their web 
boards, but no submitted patches.
