What's Broken on the Principia Web Site?

So according to the stats log, the error page for the forums is the fourth most hit page on the Principia/Magicians of England Web site. I can't figure out why this is. No one's alerted me to a problem.

Have any readers here run into the problem? I fully expect the forums for an unreleased game to be quiet or even silent. However, if the reason that no one's posting is because there's a problem, I'd like to know so I can fix it ASAP.

Magicians of England Available as Download

I posted about Magicians of England in a Story Games thread about novels we'd like to see made into RPGs and got a few requests for more information. Rather than hold back, I just went ahead and posted the full rules of Magicians of England as a free download, as well as some play aids, etc.

Magicians of England is a story game of gentleman (and woman) magicians in Victorian England. It's my homage to Sussana Clarke's Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. The game is playable, and fun, but unfinished. It ended up being a sort of workshop for concepts that I incorporated into Princpia.

By the way, my frustrated rant to the contrary, Principia is still very much moving forward towards publication.
