Just took a look at the website - http://eurospeleo.uk/about/

One thing struck me, unless I missed it somehow.

Would it be an idea to say when it is. I'm sure it used to but doesn't seem to now?

It does on the home page:
http://eurospeleo.uk/index.php

But it would be sense to put it also on the "about" page because that's where everyone (well, me and Bottlebank at least) expects to find it.

Cheers!

All is revealed! Knew I'd seen it somewhere.

Could really do with being on the other pages as well, or at least an obvious link back to the home page? I clicked through the other four looking for it but didn't click the logo which takes you to the home page.

Just tried to book tickets, but I get a server error when I click on Buy Tickets Now on the tickets page.

An error occurred during a connection to bookings.british-caving.org.uk. The OCSP server suggests trying again later. (Error code: sec_error_ocsp_try_server_later)

Will try again later :)

We've had some reports this happens intermittently with FireFox.

Either try with Internet Explorer or as you say, try again later.

Yup - works with IE.
Thanks!

There's a problem with the web server run by StartSSL that uses OCSP[1] to verify that SSL/TLS certificates haven't been revoked.

It shows up not just for Duncan and myself, but for this well regarded SSL/TLS testing website.

https://dev.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=bookings.british-caving.org.uk&s=31.25.186.126&hideResults=on

OCSP ERROR: Exception: Read timed out [http://ocsp.startssl.com/sub/class1/server/ca]

If it works in IE, but not in recent Firefox, that's because IE isn't, by default[2], as security conscious.

To (temporarily, of course) disable OCSP stapling in FF, go to the about:config page and set "security.ssl.enable_ocsp_stapling" to false.

[1] Online Certificate Status Protocol
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Online_Certificate_Status_Protocol

[2] http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ieinternals/archive/2011/04/07/enabling-certificate-revocation-check-failure-warnings-in-internet-explorer.aspx

"However, if a given certificate specifies a CRL or OCSP URL, but the revocation check cannot be completed (say, because the Certificate Authority’s server is not reachable), Internet Explorer will not notify the user."

Hi Alan,

Thanks for the info.

As you say it is because FireFox is doing it right and IE is lax.

Disable stapling in FireFox is probably beyond most people and not necessarily a good idea so I opted to explain the work around.

I'm hoping startSSL will get their act together otherwise I'll be get certs from a new provider.

It's only a work-around if you are running MS Windows.

Sounds like a plan. They are cheap, but then you get what you pay for. I have a free certificate from them for one of my vanity domains and had noticed the issue a couple of times recently, but it went away quickly. A few hours it seemed to have become permanent, though it's better now.

Regarding day rates: The cost of running the event is around the same per person per week irrespective of the number of days they actually attend. At this stage we do intend to offer day tickets on the door but we won't be able to set pricing for them until much closer to the event when we know that we can break even.
Offer really cheap deals for people that can commit and then sting those who don't have the easy life or maybe don't want to/can't attend for a full week. Strange logic. I'll see how things go and if a day or two is overpriced I won't bother, assuming I'm even capable of attending by then.
Awkward, grumpy sod.

We're cavers, running an event for cavers... But we've got to be able to cover the cost of the event!  By committing you help us to achieve that.

STOP PRESS Buy your ticket at Hidden Earth to be entered in the prize
draw for a free ticket. Winner to be announced at the closing ceremony.

The winner from the first 100 tickets bought will also be announced at the
same time.

STOP PRESS. The prices go up after Hidden Earth.

So do cavers still need to jump through the usual hoops to get hold of Leck Fell permits, or can we just rock up and go caving? :)

'rock up and go caving'. LOL. If overseas Eurospeleo events are a framework to go on, trips to caves will be ticketed and scheduled and people will be given a time slot to visit them, plus will be required to register in the morning plus deregister in the evening to prove their safe return.  Just a guess, happy if someone who knows the score can flesh out the details though....

"The score" is still being planned but rest assured the details will be made available once they are finalised, however the "permit system" will still be in place but the permits will only be available to Eurospeleo delegates and as the Cap'n already suggested above, it is likely that delegates will need to do some form of booking in and out, if only to ensure that people are out of the caves...

Surely isn't that what is supposed to happen when you want to go caving in the dales? (without the laughing - of course)
