    First, Fetch support, you should check your age verification procedure. it is wrong, i had to say i was born before 1989 in order to get through and waste som email addresses on the way. Ok, to the point.

    Every time i download files, stuffit expander wakes up from nowhere trying to encode my .php files. I don't know why, but it never happens when i download .php files with any other client or browser.

    This is extremely annoying. I run Jaguar, but this problem appeared on 10.1 as well.

    The age-verification thing is required by law -- websites can't ask for personal information from people under 13.

    The StuffIt problem is due to the "UUencode" post-processing action -- it causes any BBEdit file you download to be passed to StuffIt Expander. You can disable it by choosing "Post-processing..." from the Customize menu, selecting the action, and pressing the Disable button.

    Thanks a lot for the fast reply!

    What I ment with the verification problem was that first i selected i was born BEFORE 1989 and then it got mixed up and i had to ask my parents for promission to join. Then i registerred once again and said i was born AFTER 1989 and then it worked fine.

    Thanks again.
