Using !Webserve as a webcache proxy.
The Oregano web browsers, both 1 and 2, lack a web cache so fetch files from the web for every page, including pages just fetched, e.g when using the back arrow. By incorporating !Webserve as a proxy, previously fetched pages are not downloaded but taken from a cache on the hard disk. Click here for instructions on setting up !Webserve as a webproxy.
PostScript Printer Definition File for 'Brother' Duplex printers
Based on Paul Vigay's PostScript PDF for Xerox Phaser printer, I have developed a PostScript PDF file for a Brother DCP 8045D all-in-one Printer Copier. It allows duplex (two sided) printing automatically from both the main Paper Tray and the Manual/Multi-Purpose Tray, flipping on either the long side or the short side. Although developed on the DCP 8045D, it also works with the DCP 9020CDW colour laser and other 'Brother' PostScript duplex printers.
Release 2.01 now updated to accommodate both PostScript 2 and the new PostScript 3 printer driver available from Martin Würthner's website. Version 1.15 (or later) of the PostScript 3 printer driver now has the coding to operate the feeds in the same way as the PS2 driver. Earlier versions do not have this code so you must upgrade to the latest version to take advantage of this feature.

I have received reports that it also works with Lexmark MX410de and Canon I-Sensys MF729Cx.
