Description David Ritchie 2007-08-26 18:43:32 UTC
I tried clicking the link to download
and I got a blank tab and no network activity.  This happened using Firefox, IE 7.0.5730.11 and Opera 9.23.  I have Adobe Reader 7.0 installed.  I tried to download another PDF (lucid_dreaming.pdf) and it worked fine.

Working for me on XP with Adobe Reader 8.1. Probably a temporary problem.

Reopening: I'm also getting an empty file. At the very least, there's something bad stuck in the chache somewhere.

It's stuck in KNAMS cache; can confirm w/:

$ http_proxy= wget -S -O -

A simple ?action=purge on the image page clears it right up.
