    Hey Diamon Dave, I'm using my terminal right now in linux to browse the site. I had to fake my header at being Windows IE, if i didn't do it, would give me a 406 error.

    Any reason why? i'm just wondering, since surfing with my server with lynx is good when i'm on slow connections. Makes it look like i'm on highspeed but no images :)

    Thanks in advance.

    Wow, Lynx still exists? I was surfing with Lynx from dumb terminals back in the day ('93-'94). Interesting to know that it is still out there. I'm actually curious how in this case, you modified your HTTP header to change the browser type. -e-
