[Mono-list] Problems with mono downloads
Tue, 05 Aug 2003 14:38:36 -0400
I remember someone mentioning this earlier and part of the problem might
be that the MIME type is being sent as a gzip, which causes many
browsers to attempt to ungzip it as they download it.
Right click -> save as usually fixes the problem.
Of course, I might be wrong on the underlying technological reasons, I
don't run the site, I'm just some wag on the internet.
