    Hey guys...

    Congrats, the forums server actually exceeded my 1.5TB bandwidth allotment for June. It's not a big deal in itself, but is likely in part a side effect of me turning Gzip off in the past due to odd Safari bugs.

    I've turned Gzip back on... for two reasons

    - It should reduce bandwidth considerably, as most of the data coming out of this server is text. (images are on a separate server)

    - It should speed up browsing from the iPhone (EDGE network) which is bandwidth limited. I've checked and the iPhone's Safari does appear to accept gzip'd output.

    So, just a heads up, in case people start getting odd safari connection errors again...

    Ok, so there's no need for that "bad server response is back" thread then :) I'd kind of missed them in a way.
