Description

16 years ago
Apparently due to the "complex nature of this site", only IE 5.5 or "better" can
access this site.

This site uses the user-agent string sent to determine who gets in.
Overriding with IE 5.5 gets you in but it doesn't look pretty.

So it's either
a) Our browser is not good enough to be able to display this page
or
b) The webmaster rather just make use of things that display good in IE rather
than things that are standard.

It's probably b.

Could somebody send a letter to the webmaster?
I doubt we can do anything on this one though.

Aside from the Page being a front for a multi level marketing scheme, this site
does not redirect to an error page any more, and works just fine.
