Dear Adam,
I just saw the 'xml config' error once in Internet Explore and your 'downloader line' for a few seconds from the second  time on. Nothing really happens in Firefox with task and task 2. I mean they aren't downloaded at all.
I'm using Windows XP: Tiger XP, Service Pack 3. As far as I know, I don't have a download manager or an internet accelerator.
I hope yor technical team can find a good answer to my problem,
Oscar
 

Dear Oscar,
Thank you so much for this information, which I've passed on to our technical team.
One other thought - have you tried waiting a few minutes in case there is a slow connection to our exercises server?

Dear Adam,

This is just to let you know that at my last attempt I could see task 2 downloaded properly via Mozilla Firefox.

Best wishes,

Oscar

P. D.: Have you read my comment on Extra sensory perception in the Magazine?

Dear Oscar,

I'm very happy to hear that; thanks for the information.

I saw your comment on the Extra Sensory Perception article, but we are very busy at the moment trying to solve the problems with tasks, so I will have to deal with it later.

Best wishes,

Dear Adam,

I just want you to know that finally I can watch any video on this website and all tasks are downloaded properly using Internet Explorer 8.

Thanks a lot for your support,

Oscar

Dear Adam,
After 'checking disk' task downloaded properly in Firefox, but task 2 doesn't work yet in either Internet Explorer or Firefox.
Best wishes,
Oscar

Dear Adam,
I have tried waiting 'for ages' in case there is a slow connection to your excercises server and reloaded the page more than once with a lack of success. This problem doesn't happen with the other exercises.
Thanks a lot indeed for your help,
Oscar
