[Ansteorra] OP Troubles

For files above X  size, when you are reading the file in a web browser, 
Adobe Acrobat with try to download only part of the file to display just 
a page at a time.  As you step forward through the file it downloads a 
little bit more at a time as you move on.  Sometimes this causes display 
problems and ya never know what combinations of browsers, servers, and 
web caches might screw things up.

My experience has shown that this is the most frequent source of such 
problems.  Often the biggest culprit is some transparent web cache that 
some Internet service provider has in place. (they have such caches 
there so that in general people will get better/faster performance)

To get around this dont open the file in your browser.  Instead right 
click on the link and use the "Save As" option to save the file to your 
local hard drive.  Then open the file from your local hard drive.

Try this and see if it works for you.  If it does then most certainly 
the problem is with Adobe trying to retrieve only part of the file and 
some web server/cache just not being able to properly deliver that 
segment of the file as requested by that version of Adobe.
