Gee.  I sure want to buy a server from a company that can't even make
their own server on their own site talk anything resembling HTTP.

And I was wondering why Netscape is running way old (eg. 1.1, 2.x)
versions of their servers on most of their sites.  Guess the admins know
something the developers don't.

Your browser sent a message this server could not understand.Connection

God forbid there be a HTTP/1.2.
