Since sometime last night (or possibly this morning) UK time, I've been getting the server error every time I try to load the page. Refreshing doesn't help, nor does anything else. I thought the site was down to start with, but I've been in work all afternoon, and had no problem accessing the site there at all. Any advice?

Has anyone gotten this message?
I tried to use my Gmail account from a computer running 9.1 and from IE I get this message:
I can't even find the option to enable ActiveX


To use Gmail, enable ActiveX controls in Internet Explorer. You can do this by going to the Tools menu, selecting Internet Options, Security tab, Internet zone, and either select the Default Level, or selecting Custom Level and scrolling down to "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" and selecting Enable.

I cannot believe this generousity!

If anybody feels like blessing me with an account, although I am just a big lurker in these forums, I'd really appreaciate it. In a weak moment I promised my GF that I would try to get her one as her last one is just not reliable, and haven't had any luck. Seeing as she has put up with my grumpy mood althrough the last 3 weeks of exams, she does deserve some attention.

(Don't worry, she's gonna get more attention that a potential g-mail account when I'm eventually finished all the exams )

I'll even post a pic of her if it works out, she's quite an attractive tiny little norwegian girl.

Her e-mail is liz bommelibom.com, and if it bounces, then my e-mail is erik bluesky.org.

Cheers!

Very true - for example, I may not post much but i have been around here for quite a while, as you can see from my Registered Date.

Any chance of one of those invites? pretty please?

Many thanks if you do... I quite understand if you don't though.

how does one acquire invites to send to people? is it a random thing, or based on account usage ...... or something else?

I didn't start getting invites until I started using my account with relatively normal usage. Who knows?
