    I am still unable to post in our thread Mooseman... I can't even PM you.

    It's just strange... I've had trouble creating new threads in here too...

    I'm on my 3rd browser (errors in IE and Google Chrome... I get redirection errors in Safari - which is what I'm trying to use now).

    Weird... if you getting those errors no matter what browser, maybe it's something with your computer settings/firewall/ISP provider?

    Home & work... two completely different networks - we don't proxy.

    No idea... maybe someone else has one...

    block the lynx
  6. BigBlue Magic Jones

    Whats absolutely strange to me is I can do "block the lynx"

    But if I put a space after lynx, it gives me the error. (but not a comma! or a Quote!) : puzzled:

    Well, I looked, and couldn't see "lynx<space>" as a reserved word. I'll PM Ed to see if he has any ideas.

    Hey. I tried it and I got an error too! Is it just the word "lynx" though?

    Block the linx
    Block the linux

    Missed this thread.

    Unfortunately, it's a security configuration on the server that we can't really get around.

    Weird. I wonder why they would block that particular syntax ("lynx<space>")...

    Mr. Jock, T.V. quiz Ph.D, bags few lynx.

    This situation is wildly amusing, if I do say so myself.

    Any combo with lynx works as long as that word is not followed by a space
    lynx
    As the only word on the line works fine.....

    Weird....

    lynx

    And here I thought it was because your sig switched to Russian... I figured you'd been hacked!

    Until I threw that in the google translator and it came up with "American Elk Man arrives"... :)

    Lynx- is a command line browser in unix... perhaps that is why it's protected, to preserve some sort of functionality with that browser... (which I used a very very long time ago when most of the web was still text... you get fine images which look like "[image]"... :)
  16. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I wonder why.
  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Probably need a history of unix for that :)

    My translation of Mooseman's Russian line was something like "Here comes the Man of Moose" :D
