I opened a new OSM account (for new contributions) when it became clear
that the data I'd already entered was in danger of being deleted. As it
transpired, I was able to accept the new conditions for my earlier data
thanks to Nearmap's resolution of the sticking point.
What particularly turns me off fosm.org is that I am unable to see a map
when I go to the site. Using Firefox on Linux, I click on "Maps" and
get redirected to http://fosm.org/poly/tah.html#2.00/34.4/-5.9 which is
a blank screen for me.
My other two Linux browsers (Arora and Konqueror) come up with a
completely blank home page at http://fosm.org/
When I boot into Windows XP, neither Explorer nor Firefox fare any better.
What do I have to do to see an fosm map?
