For some reason toady the download link on a code section of my scratchpad stopped working. I noticed it straight away becauase that's where my perlmonks css comes from!
a download link from any code section of my public scratchpad yields the following:
<span style="color: #cc0000" class="error">Server Error (Error ID 7977
+889a70370)</span><p>An error has occurred. The site administrators
have been notified of the problem and will likely
soon fix it. Thank you, for you're patients.</p>
And it's exactly like that - in all it's text/plain glory!
