    I just tried to download something from the new website of Christian Rollinger:
    http://www.canonfd.com/The_Canon_FD_Documentation_Project/Choose.html

    After chosing a document one then is redirected to a file host and has to chose between a download as not being a member of that host-site and a (paying-)member.
    After chosing for non-member a watch running down indicates the download time. And that’s it. Nothing further happens.

    Just tried it. After the delay countdown for non-members you have to click on the download button in the center of the screen. That actually starts the download. Which OS and browser are you using? Is your browser allowing redirects?

    Many thanks, Lee. It works fine now.

    Even (or rather, especially) for me as native speaker that German text concerning the download time combined with those graphics was confusing.
    It turned out that merely the start of the download is retarded.

    And I hesitated to use that final button as it looked as if it is refering to membership application. (At the moment some fraudulent german sites are around using some tricks of that kind.)

    Ben,

    All links without a pdf designation won't work. But the majority of the pdf-links will work. Though through that strange file-host site.

    Might this be a browser issue?

    I used Opera.
