I'm downloading the Geiger Lamp .pdf ok, but I'm in the US.  I've attached the Geiger Lamp .pdf here.  Are you able to download that?

 My hero!

Thank you. Not sure why yours worked. And also it downloaded so much faster than the original from Instrucables.

Thanks a million!

btw, I'm in the US also, NYC.

We're looking into the problem right now, so hopefully we won't have any more corruption problems soon. 

In the meantime, are there any other .pdf's you like me to post that have been corrupted for you?

I'm downloading again from the original URL that you posted. The file downloads (takes forever), but then trying to open it I get the same error; "Couldn't open the file. It may be corrupt or a file format that Preview doesn't recognize". I've also tried opening the file in Acrobat Reader 9 and Acrobat Pro 7. Adobe Reader gives me the error "There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired".

OSX Leopard 10.5.8 - Safari 4.0.4

Are you having difficulty with other PDFs on the site as well?

 Hi. No only the geiger lamp project. I downloaded 4 other PDFs of different projects and all downloaded and opened just fine. I downloaded the Geiger lamp project 4 times, all PDFs were corrupt.
