my firefox (ff3) doesn't display anything here, but also no error or 
something. And there is nothing in the document it downloaded ("view 
document source").

Trying to wget the data from console

$ wget "http://tagwatch.stoecker.eu/*%5Badopted=*%5D"

after some waiting actually results in

Connecting to osmxapi.hypercube.telascience.org||:80... 
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 501 Internal Server Error
2008-07-29 15:09:20 ERROR 501: Internal Server Error.

Hmm ... I expect it's only just me and the API is working fine? :-)
