Myself and a couple other people with Android devices (phone an tablet) cannot seem to access FS with those devices.
We're getting an error:

Not Acceptable

An appropriate representation of the requested resource /forum/index.php could not be found on this server.


Any idea about why this is happening?

Hey.. our only theory is that you are using an app or something that would attempt to screen scrape the site. Over the last couple of years we've really shored up our defenses against screen scrapers and rogue bots so that would be our first thought. If you are just using a browser on your Android device and it is giving you this error, can you let us know exactly what device and what version of the Android OS you are running as well as a link to a page that gives you this error? Is this happening to anyone else?

Just to close the loop on this. It was an odd issue where we were blocking a bot that happened to have an identifying string that matched a particular version of a particular OS. All set now.
