  1. Sadly, I continue to get an error message that reads, “Unable to understand response from server!” Have you heard of anyone else receiving this message, or what can be done? This service is beyond frustrating.

  2. Is it possible to download the private ablum?
    Wayback Search Machine only for public ablum only……

    Thanks so much!
