After a lovely 12 hour debugging session, I have a working procedure for
registration and payments. I also think the proxying problem is fixed. There
is still some cleanup to do, and the multiple payment handling is not
However, things are ready for a first round of testing on the test server.
I'm happy for the reporting of any problems you encounter, and any suggestions
for how to improve the user experience.

entering talks and registering for the conference.

When you test credit card payment, the VISA number 4111111111111111, with any
security code and expiry date should work.
Some things, I know are not ideal, but are not easy to change:
- I don't have a widget that makeswill allow people to put a number in front
of T-shirt orders. Making one, or building the form from smaller building
blocks would take more time than I have available to spend right now.
- There is an extra page to go through on the way to paying by credit card.
This is necessary for the interfacing with our database. Jumping off-site in
the same operation that we store things into the database causes problems.
One thing that I will try to change is the presentation of accomodation in the
invoice/credit card summary. It now says 1 for number of items and a sum that
is the product of price per night and number of nights. It should say number
of nights for number of items and the per night figure.
There will also be more text on the invoices and a printable invoice after the
credit card payment.
