    I donated to the GTK-MUI wrapper but the amount isnt updated. I see that the transfer has left my bank though.

    @ TheMagicM

    Please note that donations are processed entirely manually - by volunteers at the Amiga Club Hamburg, which has been operating the bounty system for the last decade.

    The old bounty website does not have the required functionality to update the website automatically.

    I am afraid there is no guarantee that your payment will show up within a specific time frame. I realize that this is not what you would like to hear. I fully understand. If you are unhappy with this, feel free to ask for a refund and perhaps consider donating to developers directly.

    @ASiegel BTW
    I told Alb42 that he accidentally fulfilled the Spreadsheet Application bounty
    https://www.morphos-storage.net/?id=1531988
    But he didn't need the money... any suggestions?

    Why would you do that?

    That bounty has been on the book for a decade (wait for AW to tell us how long exactly) with no serious takers.

    Back in the day I did some work based on the AROS version, but over time it became clear that the idea of "emulating" one very complex UI-toolkit with another less complex UI-toolkit to run super complex apps is totally flawed and would only result in broken bloatware.

    Directly porting Gimp/GNUmeric/Abiword/... to MUI would the slightly less complex route, or one could go the simple route of porting GTK/GDK to use CGX as a framebuffer (similar to that Cycnix stuff, just without X11 in between).

    1st is more work than anybody seems willing to do, 2nd is about as useful as VNC into an Linux-box just running those apps.


    ->Why would you do that?

    Again, Amiga Club Hamburg are in charge of the bounties. So, you would need to contact them about it.

    Based on your comment and Kronos:

    I'll request a refund and then send to a different effort. Who do I ask for a refund? I sent an email to donations@morphzone.org and it bounced.

    Thats what I used to make a payment but I sent it without registering on paypal. NOW I have an account but that transaction isnt listed.

    EDIT:
    Looks like it is making its way to Thorsten Mampel. Dunno who that is. Once that is complete, I'll find another effort to donate to.

    I love that film.
    Sidenote: A few yers ago (4 or 5) I made the mistake to show that film to a class at school. They were rather bored by it and just didn't understand. I realized that this film is massively 80ies at its inner guts. It's absolutely not compatible to today's kids. Funnily enough I made the same mistake with another film: Mystery science theatre 3000. The only brillantly entertained person in class was me. Since then I just refuse the request to watch a film (poular request before summer break)...

    LOL!! Some of the best movies were in that era.

    Switching back to bounties etc... Devs should have various things like a donation to get them coffee etc. Also, what is a better bounty to send this to? I went to the Bounties link and if thats not the right place, then I'll just look at software I find useful like Wayfarer and use it on things like that.

    I guess Thorsten Mampel isnt going to reply to my Paypal refund request. If that is the case, why do we manage bounties on this site via an individual who does not reply to emails.

    I guess I'll donate specifically to a developer next time and not anything thru the bounty system.
