Hey all, bit of an odd first post, but just for any other people who're trying to register here...The Google Web Accelerator blocks the registration, keeps insisting that the confirmation code entered was invalid; figured it out after disabling my firewall, PeerGuardian and finally the Google thing.
Anyway, wkd resource you guys have here
Oh, and hello!
Oh, yikes. This is why I'm cautious of "web accelerators"... the only real web acelerator is buying a bigger pipe.
Thanks so much, this one had me going for ages! I was trying to register for about an hour (I know it sound pretty stupid :lol:!) Then I read this, knocked off the web accelerator, and it worked! Thanks a lot!
I'll make a FAQ item, thanks for the info.
hi. it took me several days to manage to register.
now i can tell the problem.
i was receiving the activation link on my Lycos.co.uk webmail account
if u click the link the browser shows it incomplete in the address bar.
i u copy/paste shows it incomplete as well (the "key=xxxxx" at the end, after the underscore disappears)
i solved it by copying the tail after copying the main long bit.
Strange, annoying, probably related to lycos interface cause it behaves the same on Firefox 2, IE 7 and Opera 9.
may be possible to fix by changing string syntax?
thanx for the great job. C U soon!
