sgistuff.net is broken, so here's my workaround.

As anyone who has checked sgistuff.net in the past few days has found out, the site doesn't work anymore. Rather than loading the page, your browser will try to download it instead. This is because the site sends the wrong content-type in its response, sending application/x-httpd-php instead of text/html. In order to browse the site, you will need to use an extension to change the content-type.

The most up-to-date extension that does this is Mason, but it doesn't work on Firefox 57+, so you will need to install either Firefox ESR 52 or, as I did, Waterfox, which is still at version 56. Not sure what does this on Chrome/Safari/IE/Opera, but Mason on older FF works. In the Mason preferences, you need to configure a rule in the User Defined list, with the following settings:

To change the new content type for "Function", you will need to click the Config... button and enter it into the popup.

Click OK here and apply the main Mason settings window. SGIStuff pages should now display in-browser properly. I emailed Gerhard, the admin of the site, to let him know about the problem, but in the mean time, this is a usable workaround.

This fix works to load the pages, but some parts are still... a little weird.
