Something went wrong yesterday, I don't know exactly what, but here's
a new try, which I tested several times:


***** INFORMATION FOR OPERA USERS ONLY (at least 11.00 build 1156):
***** There seems to be some kind of bug with Opera and .tar.bz2
files: Opera added 23 bytes to the file for some reason. If you
insist in using Opera for this, you need to remove the first 15 bytes
and the last 8 bytes of the file. The correct size of the file is
2335 Bytes. You can use ghex2 for editing the file. The file should
start with âBZh61AY&SYâ and end with âBBr..@â.

It seems to me that this is indeed not an opera-specific problem: also
with wget, opera 10.63 and dillo this turns out to happen, arora as
well as ancient NCSA Mosaic just work fine on that. Funny thing is that
only opera and arora seem to come up with the intended filename
74-IEC.tar.bz2 ...

Shall i put it up someplace else?

HTH, Florian

I asked the people at the Opera channel (IRC) at OperaNet (Europe) and they found out what happened. The server compressed the file again âwithout telling Operaâ, they said, so when downloading it with Opera you really get a â.tar.bz2.gzâ rather than just a â.tar.bz2â, so you need to add â.gzâ to the file name, then extract the file twiceâ

Anyway, I intend to add them at http://www.gedasymbols.org/ myself (asking for an account and all that), I just thought that someone could take a look at them since this is the very first time I create any symbols. Sure, I just edited existing symbols so I guess not much could have gone wrong, just wanted to be as sure as possible. I have tried a few of them and they seemed to work, but I didn't do anything advanced with them.

Kind regards
