Re: 404 Errors in Internet Explorer Only
noyz319: the site loads for me in Firefox and IE, but when checking the server response from the command line, it gives a 404 error.

Is it possible that you have an .htaccess file with rewrite rules that would do something like this? That’s kind of interesting that it returns a 404 error but still loads the forum. Maybe there’s an ErrorDocument directive that directs the 404 error to the forum index page?
The server response has been consistent though between IE, FF and command line, so I wouldn’t worry too much about the fact that it only happens sometimes. There is one thing making the 404 error happen on all browsers. I wonder what that is…
