hey all,

I hit a problem trying to load this website at work today, work is still using IE6 (ugh) and we're behind a Squid proxy server.
When I try to load the site I get prompted to download geekzone.co[1] as an unknown file type, when i try refreshing the page or goto a forum page using my browser history I still get the same prompt.

I've hit this error before loading nzherald.co.nz but if I refresh the page or restart my browser I can get it open, but the problem loading the geekzone site started today.

thanks.

IIS7 has seperate handlers for static file and dynamic file (eg: asp) compression, HttpFox is brilliant for seeing what's happening with this sort of stuff.

You can see my browser accepts gzip encoding but in the response for the asp page it's not using gzip anymore.

Here you can see the google analytics script is using gzip compression
