    full circle magazine - strange problem

    When i try do download the newst issue of FCM - i have this problem

    http://pl.tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2s9aj9h&s=5

    it says that my browser is 8 years old and I should download new IE or mozilla or google chrome.

    I'm using KDE, on kubuntu 9.04 with Firedfox 3.03

    my useragent is: Your User Agent is: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1)

    what should i do now?

    ... try downloading directly from: http://fcm.octarineparrot.com/fullci...ssue24-eng.pdf

    Not sure where you got ie.octarineparrot.com from though, something to do with mrmondays hosting maybe? He likes IE I'm told

    Sorry, I've set my server to globally block IE6, didn't think about full circle when I added that functionality (it was before I hosted the issue).

    I'm curious as to why firefox on kubuntu was reporting itself as Internet Explorer on Windows though...

    Edit: The issue has been moved over to the main full circle server now, so this issue won't happen any more. I'll make sure it's fixed before next time I host an issue!

    i dunno... but i experience that on other sites too. My browser being marked as IE6... that's pretty strange... :/ i suppose Kubuntu users, and KDE users - still have much problems to address...
    But hey! I love KDE anyway
    btw. now it all works just fine. Thanks. Problem solved.
