    It could be your standard 404 message.

    That's really weird. I've had no problem with my PC. I'll have to try it out with my old Mac (one of the first G3's) and see what it does...

    Can it have anything to do with cookies?? A friend of mine is able to download stuff on his own computer but not on mine, and I know my computer is a bit strange when it comes to allowing ActiveX, cookies and scripting.

    I've never had that sort of problem, not being able to download.... I had another account but I haven't been here in so long that I forgot the password and the e-mail address I used, so I can't get it back. Anyway, I had no problems last time, and hopefully none this time.
