    Default something REALLY weird!

    When I was previewing a post, and pressed back, then foward, I got a page that looked like this: x\ys8ۮw@ڑ3N;lq֖D1<yT$1& .| -_7@HIjw35 ?4n\/n:O]qx'^*GZbx!>W 2td=YQuKҳӉgzgP;.a!/-Ov9 eG ';_RP|0onӶG꺐lt7w-ё V.ϮzO-u4ْə!H)tR\_q2t[Ѵ|JSR}B H}GvHlw;Ýs{Nogcxv=azU!9_՛x*3JyG|q,/d g-Y)tv.MrBFUhkZbsQp Ze'lJcF򂾥Q!Ͷ+Te/VY^H(/IJS8zEUE7 F_*ĩ: ^f<Ej51|.M<nj٬JaDahTUY0 UQT%&(`R %isVK/_W^E_JD%hi@DG);cj3]& ' ̀Џ;SQW*dFcH>]uޟ]<^#^H[9 e.A߼{|S'CfaT*R$2~&Ku? t~J@b.TkTvP^߾?/dm~!{ &mH7-47H6+=ɂȐI|k<:@d󇂲IVW>rP+(\ٌ:YٶyTHjZ~Bf J e Mr& s ]'5N&-BR0X`(Ÿm1){*pF+k_j(- nגј A"لԃJ5@ˁmxr>.*BЀhLMՙ~yBj@cbs(B(m")_a q-t %7vEu@ O<2BqL'& oi!R 2'A'w<>?_IKakE # -(A4Z6 ݖ5 ;~wDtq^F`V` Vsh!O+: oU{b-_).UR Ϣ<-IaPs- 8sd9NTy@V?"O,#ء\z`[=;L53KoB `WMFI[" 9^2TSc}6kAK Ƣ-E >=TuԐfY}Wc4 cYǓ=.TATӻ"4k1ot6y@'Q>P:a LdOc%ˡ/Wt4~C-X6jiRq6%ĥS NI&-Ѭe .;#,zwT>qЩNg_77*@_8lc-38t&;>:.5Fd6 _Qr'e&& _H oB;2U9.. }Hz&xsHzCPsςQK0}WWCT =Dj_W'a8&;_Չnڡ45+rŰ}q~W!l&3=wKN՜4ޒ缃IbX3L=d Jy_U0&$%Xtw;--m Ju&tڨ7i/*GVd(]#; / _c~>AzWF!'I]9 }f=OV'ge&pjei`H\ss6|\tSwpfKe{]nC\SGQfNWv`}r̟{WpIaeu\a7 T1b۲Yd'YeK?ڥۛ<[| ,ǽ5ݲpRgL <}x* 0;ꆉ;+fo2(jP0mf4Ǘ/|]g1Xro}INĎ8-Wɖ|5@}_?y.%ڳM|"7z_lG΋s=4 C'- rM޽X芺.agBP n(q8P>:pӵxbH?Yk׌`FX įSm6=n ,ڞRkk13a;ZS eׁx1#8&_R|1_}ua1cޮЕx.w`|yW|"|û&m |v>v;^a#@ޘ 8 Z#Kcw_546[T\.bc_q0}R;jUu ~ sd)xs>K BZ`Q-ž|ֵ;;]@>?So|{|(d0*圫baȣ?8EI"$EALpDx{bȏçYm 9;B +B6F_z^~W3LH͇5sL WE ^܈ KV 2/CF=$tMtʉAnf su9<;([@ >I$anQ&BKaXE“Mù1jBO(8`uk}J V(B  +$$\a\N Mq~ӿM $@) bcccz3ܹQI:(Qc(/wuW@|P+D"F'{E(^b*#j~(l4g" S_+_qbvR]iM$KύB3S 'e `w V 8st{gI[Gs&uچL!&fW%#^3S93 :r ͷOH5/a%x\u'74bĈCM WjEmxvYedJFb\0Jbh<|ʕ沱B.b*K4yXRr,SsSDI(ˊWX|utE k JC39"#ݡ÷% FPYa*<)1v(MWZI' bY(]Z<q"YJ1 Rư4%0Y !?-Xڔ4}6 $J7ni8 8Ho~c>c,_1Qxo6抃Qv&%N-KNA~K 1JmO3Ǔ$[^''J73ԉE{`sJYm;!/x hpycվ_Iyהui*ݫ^ѻy|'sq8ڇ~ E$[3{~]g-d 1:L,`\HF p,gyϰ?'۽]L:72hU:]tKw؄9@]ƝZ(:R8(^r#^* 6_*J*Ϝ  1 u!lKj*.n܎E!gE=^YH!T5q[ Y]F-FCħ혫_B#_cmX\1֘D0(O-S֚ł1pX(}(ݏ><߲!\d*,m:"yK|sgf_>1'LL)c);- j q0Br[E 1_11#=▅)^C&nwbs{OLlt:m1,<8FU}<NLu1m%+V # A 1\P{6lOŞEv8)O ܀Ǝ& lq[D,'޹N3R(tP{YxV{qo 2ʇdT CRb6=H G:̏#Gwt-mq w?\9_lc_ULǧk{,0jj`r.~G]•DIu=mù;n,}żh *N"֒&^t}N+vosIg'vҬopȃ4"%}fY~^t1*[)"B GV/wx590v| &Ot;R󉚁v(vzS[

    I was getting that when I was at my dad's house and the firewall was up, except I don't think mine was as long as yours.

    It's encrypted, what-ever-programming-language-they-use-here. I think.

    Get any file in Windows Explorer, right click, open with, Choose Program, Notepad. Make sure the file isn't large in size - ie, not an mp3 etc. Pictures and small .wav files make interesting results.

    Hey, I understand that perfectly. To make it a complete webpage, all you need is a dot here, and a bracket there, and...

    I don't recognise what file format that could be - I guess it could be compressed stuff which the browser didn't decompress when receiving, seeing as EoFF forums send the pages in compressed format to you

    My guess is that this forum is using gzip compression. Basically, eoff webserver compresses the html webpage before it sends it to your computer.

    Your web browser is probably having problems decompressing the page, or maybe it doesn't even handle compressed pages. The other possibility is that the eoff webserver is not sending the correct mime type for the compressed file.

    Talk to one of the admins. And make sure you have a fully updated browser (such as Internet Explorer 5 or 6)
