I get the same effect, but I doubt it's malicious. The HTML is terrible -- the BODY and HTML tags aren't even closed.
Apparently they started in FrontPage -- let this be a warning to everyone ;) -- pasted in some banner ad code, webring code and who knows what else.
I've heard my floppy drive start before when I have code errors on a page I try to open. Don't know why, but they have been my own errors, so I know I wasn't up to anything.

One of the tables is trying to load the background image from floppy. Chances are the author has forgotten to correct the linking. No big deal.
I agree, not the best of sites, but somewhat better than my first attempts.

Hi Robert, it's been a while.
That is really odd! I went to the site and nothing happened. I am running a non standard browser/OS. I looked at the source code and the external js file. There is a ton of js being used on that page. You have three external js files being requested and there is also a few kb of code in the page itself. There is the Hitbox code, the yahoo webwring code, and the banner rotation code. I wonder if the combination is triggering some type of fluke reaction from your OS /browser combo? I couldn't find anything deviant.
Anyone else wanna peak?

Hey guys, what browser are you using?

NN 4.7 and MSIE 5.5 on Win95. Same effect in both.

IE5 on Win98.
View the source and search for "A:". That'll find it for you.

Some of the inner pages have the same code -- I emailed the webmaster about it.
This site could be good for one of my projects too. I'm glad you mentioned it, Robert.

Thanks... it's interesting that an A drive file reference can affect my machine. That's a lot more transparent than I thought.
Hi Littleman - Are we ever going to have that Bay Area get-together you suggested way back?... I think it was you who suggested it.

That was some time ago. I'm still up for it, but I think it would be a lot of organizing.

Yes, it was... and I am too... and it would be. :) It was a great idea though. I've been so swamped that it's taken me a week to reply, so I'm definitely not the organizer. Took a look at the great picture you have in your profile. Looks like you have your hands full too.
