    Doesn't work for me. Tried both IE & FF5 several times, both Right Click/Save As and click on/Save As.

    I get a 0-byte Zip file, no errors on opening, with an empty zip.

    I don't know what the contents/extension are, but the description says "script". It could be that the contents are being filtered. I may try it from home to see if it comes through.
