This "quiz" is needed for business users and for free support. i.e. Robin answering your emailed questions.

Robin will reply with tips, such as what mapping to add, the six people nearest you on the email links pages, and a REF line for you to include in future emails to Robin on gpss@compuserve.com (on the contact page), and a free key code lasting 6 months.

Robin makes no promise here, but for years he has been re-issueing free key codes every 6 months to those who did the Quiz and remembered their REF that he gave them. i.e. you should only need to do the Quiz once, if you remember your REF.

You can read all about Robin and the Lovelock family on their family pages - so don't be shy with your Quiz answers :-)

Before you answer the Quiz, you should have GPSS or GPSSppc responding to a GPS. The software should be running on a mobile PC such as a Laptop or Pocket PC based GPS. You will need to collect the following information before you answer the Quiz:

Step 4. use GPSS then get a free superkey to remove Snoopy forever :-) Snoopy

Use GPSS for more than 3 months, then get a free superkey - to remove Snoopy forever :-)

Just use GPSS, asking Robin for help if needed. Please wait for at least 3 months before asking for the GPSS superkey. You only need to give your full name and something like your email address if different at the time you did the step 2 Quiz. Robin will check his emails to confirm you had got this far, and will send you a superkey, matched to your name, which will work on any PC or Pocket PC for an unlimited period of time.

both of us We used to say please send us 10GBP by PAYPAL to get a superkey, and pay towards the cost of GPSS and maybe a little towards a meal out for Robin and June :-) However, Robin was 65 in 2012, and told the UK taxman that he was stopping the business and not taking in money. If a big business opportunity arises, Robin can always contact the UK taxman again.

Robin is now officially "retired" - although June says he retired over 10 years ago :-)

It is true that for over 10 years he has not had to do much work to maintain GPSS and this web site, and respond to the occasional email from the many people still using GPSS around the World. The simple 1, 2, 3 process above means that it takes little time to help people start to use GPSS.

In recent years Robin spends much of his time on hobbies, some of which are GPS-related, like Trans-Atlantic Robot Boats or Geocaching.

Well, somebody has to do it :-)
