Default Driver with beta server -- please make the server recognize the driver correctly

The server hosting the beta drivers thinks that shell scripts should be printed as a normale text file. This is bad behaviour and should be changed.

Your browser is stupid or set up stupid.

Ehmm... no
It is actually a server issue, and the browser is just doing what it's told. The shell scripts are mimetype "text/plain" and the server tells the browser it's plain text and displays it as such. If the extension .sh was added as eg. mimetype "application/octetstream" the browser would ask where to save it.

I was seeing this problem a few hours ago, however we believe it to be fixed now. If anyone is still having this problem, please provide the following information:
0) Web browser (and version)
1) How reliably does this reproduce (every attempt or less)?
2) If its every attempt, please ping download.nvidia.com and provide the IP address

Thanks,
Lonni
