Problems with excellent-looking Greek (ancient and modern) resources site

I recently came across the excellent-looking when I was looking for a decent online Modern Greek dictionary. I've tried opening two or three different texts on there (specifically, Volume 9 of the Dimitrakou dictionary) but all I get is a cute little drawing of a bicycle with two spinning "loading" discs for wheels, and the word "Typesetting". I've tried in different browsers, from different machines (Firefox for Ubuntu and Windows XP, Chromium for Ubuntu, IE for XP, Android phone); I've asked the website for help but, writing in French, gave them the impression I was trying to download the book rather than consult it online, resulting in help that wasn't actually helpful... I don't know if it could be that it requires a specific version of Flash, or needs me to have a Scribd account, or...

Just wondering if anybody else is/isn't able to access this impressive-looking site, and if anyone can suggest why I can't. Also, y'know, if it works after all -- it really does look very good indeed...

I get the bicycle on the site you linked, as well. From the look of the site and the source code, I assume the bit on the bottom is intended to be an embed of a Scribd book, but considering that I can't get it to work either in two separate browsers, it seems to be broken.

However, when I click the link on top of that, with the Greek title, I can see a rather nice-looking dictionary of 547 pages on Scribd, not that I understand any of it. Can you see the book on Scribd? I can do so without being logged in.
