This new server plays nice with the Dillo browser. Apparently the supergamer server was reacting different. Dillo will log in to the forum without issue, and without the workaround we had to cook up with the other server. Also, moving here broke my package announcement script again. Turns out I just had to remove extra code I had to use for the script to log in to supergamer/vl. Don't need it now.
I guess no two servers are the same.
