IRC chat problems?

I am having trouble using IRC chat lately - my web browser only opens the .cgi as a text file. I have never had this problem before - is anyone else experiencing difficulty using IRC? Does anyone know how to remedy this?

I have tried accessing the site from 3 different computers with 3 different OS's (Windows XP, Windows 2000 & Linux) and I have had the same result every time - the browser sees the site as a text file.

I have searched this forum for topics related to this and could not find anything - I apologize in advance if anyone has already brought this up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

CGI::IRC on my.bzflag.org is currently broken. It will either be fixed or removed. In the mean time, may I recommend getting a real IRC client?
