Let's test:

~ dorward$ HEAD http://www.talgiladi.net/
500 Internal Server Error
Cache-Control: private
Date: Fri, 11 Jan 2008 16:36:22 GMT
Server: Microsoft-IIS/6.0
Content-Length: 5415
Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Client-Date: Fri, 11 Jan 2008 16:36:08 GMT
Client-Peer: 62.219.7.5:80
Client-Response-Num: 1
X-AspNet-Version: 2.0.50727
X-Powered-By: ASP.NET

As far as I can tell, the usual cause of this issue is hideously  
browser browser detection in ASP.NET. I suggest you disable that  
feature.
