    There is no malware on the site, and the only javascript on the page is from google's webmaster tools. (I checked the source code) There is something in your setup that is mistaken. If you want to block google analytics and other tools, I suggest you edit your hosts file. Or disallow...

    Installing Windows 98 as your secondary operating system.

    Yeah, I was about to say. I seem to also remember Win. 98 having stability problems. Isn't that the OS which made BSoD famous? I do miss the esoteric themes and sound effects though. Haunted house FTW

    firefox 4 more like chrome

    I like opera browser and midori the best. (midori is webkit based) I really like webkit, its fast and lightweight. But there is a bug where the program using web kit will lock up if you right click with the mouse, and its driving me nuts! Even so, midori is still my main browser.

    Best Linux Distribution

    I have tried them. (on my test server) And they aren't as fast as arch linux. Ubuntu 10.04 is very slow compared to most other linux distributions actually.

    Best Linux Distribution

    I like arch linux better than any other flavor. I've tried them all and arch was the only version of linux I've used that was simple to set up, easy to keep up to date, and NEVER has bugs. Biggest drawbacks of ubuntu: BUGS Have to re-install new versions, upgrades don't work BUGS Runs very...
