Hey, Doc -

Using Firefox, I get a Peoblem Loading Page error

that says Content Encoding Error - The page you are

trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an

 invalid or unsupported form of compression.

Please contact the website owners to inform them

of this problem.

 

This is for http://bbs.....efault.htm

and has been going on for 2 or 3 days.

 

Cheers,

Michael Loo

Hi Michael, Interesting.

I've rebooted the system. Give it another try.

In the Cooking echo, using the old BBS

Problem loading page - the connection was reset error message.

That's what it is doing with Ruth H. The Wildcat 5 BBS software is from 1997 and not compatible with most modern web browsers.

Has your web browser updated itself recently? Check in your browser configuration settings for a preload resources setting, and disable if possible.

This is why we set up the Synchronet board. Have you tried that bbs yet?
