Okay, the link should be working correctly now. If you only see MENU in the top right corner click on that to begin if you don't see a steering wheel pop up on the screen.

Test

Something is not right, here is what I got.

The script you are trying to run has generated an error

If you are the owner of the script please try the following to figure out what is wrong:


If you wrote/edited the script in Windows or on a Mac do one of the following:
If edited under Windows, run the 'fromdos' command on it from your shell account
For example: fromdos myscript.cgi
If edited on a Mac, run the 'frommac' command on it from your shell account
For example: frommac myscript.cgi
Make sure your script has the proper permissions for execution
Execute the following from your shell account: chmod 755 myscript.cgi
Run the script from your shell account and see if it generates any errors



This error happend on web Server:
