    My spammassassin junked it, which I thought was pretty funny - considering
    that SCO seels an Email server that probably runs Spamassassin or something
    like it :-)

    I couldn't read it either, although I just figured out why.
    I'm using NS 7.02 and just got a blank page. So I tried d/l'ing the SWF
    file to my system and opening it locally. Same thing, with both NS 7.02
    and 4.79. I do have ShockWave plugins and have no problem viewing other
    SWF files.
    What I just figured out is that this file requires version 6 of the
    ShockWave player/plugin (the latest version, last I knew). I stayed with 5
    when I ran into some kind of bug or incompatibility with 6 and a particular
    SWF file. But I just tried temporarily putting the v6 plugin back in place
    and opening the SWF file again in NS 7.02 and this time it worked.

    FWIW, it's basically an SCO Forum announcement/invitation.

    Actually, I was going to ask the same thing - If anyone was able to view
    that file - but you beat me to it. And in the course of writing this
    reply, I figured out why it didn't work. So, thanks. :-)
