Re: Where are the recordings?

The thing is though that I don't think I've ever seen any web address anywhere which has spaces in it. They are nearly always hyphens or underscores. It may well be so that you can have them, but to all intents and purposes when you use any document to convey them they never work.

I have tried in Firefox and they seem also to fall over, which was my point before. The web address was faulty as you say as the look up of the IP itself did not resolve to anything sensible.

Spaces are perfectly valid in web addresses.

The problem with them is that most email clients and similar applications
can't tell whether the space and the next word are still part of the address,
or if the address has finished and the next word is just a word, so therefore
spaces are often converted to %20 so that the entire address string is

Typing an address, complete with spaces, into a web browser, however, is
perfectly valid.

The fundamental problem being discussed in this thread is in fact that someone
fairly early on posted a URL which doesn't work.

is the correct URL and works, although very very slowly.

You cannot have spaces in web addresses though, can you? I was thinking
this too but decided it has to be something like underscore or something

Replace %20 by space.

I just tried this and the link appears to be totally dead!! By this, I
mean it doesn't even try to open a browser at all let alone give me a
page not found error or anything--it just says visited after I choose it
but then just sits there. What's wrong?
