Hi Michael,

Have you tried catching the error in AppleScript?

		set strResult to do shell script "curl http://www.omnis.nett"
	on error strError number nrError
		set strResult to "ERROR " & nrError & return & strError
	end try
	return strResult

Also, you could try and write the CURL output in a text file,
but I'm not sure if it would write any errors. Perhaps one of
the CURL parameters will allow you to do so

	curl http://www.omnis.nett > ~/Desktop/curloutput.txt
