I want to download the phpBB Snapshot but I always get this message: [url]http://home.hccnet.nl/s.wildenburg/temp ... ot.png[url]

Well how can I download it?

I'm going to guess that this was done to reduce the number of people downloading the snapshots and then reporting glitches, on the basis that those people that do know what to do with this are also the ones that usually follow the rules. (Not a shot at you -- just at some of the people who apparently can't read.)
You can never go home again... but I guess you can shop there.

it seems that the "snapshot" thingy is no more.
instead, you can do what you could always do, which is to get yourself a cvs client and pull the stuff from sourceforge.
read the following page carefully, and most things should become clear:

This change may stop 90% of those who ask for support.

luckily I still have 3 snapshots saved on my HDD :D

Can anyone explain how to use winCVS to fetch the files? I've gotten as far as installing it...

the article yawnster pointed to denotes cvs1.sourceforge.net as the cvs server, while the real server is cvs.sourceforge.net, aka cvs.sf.net

the full checkout command (no need to login :P )

cvs -z5 -d :pserver:anonymous:@cvs.sf.net/cvsroot/phpbb co -P phpBB2

with a decent internet, if the server is not choked, full checkout takes about 6.24 seconds.
