I went to the site. Supposedly a psychological study is being done on Y2k concerns. That's fine but when I first connected with the site, my floppy disk drive went crazy trying to read a floppy that wasn't even there. The last time that happened to me was when I went to a .mil site.

Same happened here. I didn't like it. It was
an invasion of my privacy.

I noticed something odd, too -- when I opened that URL my hard disk (very briefly) sounded like I had tried to start the car with the motor running.

Somebody was accessing an image off the a drive, and didn't change the reference to a: when they put up the page. Had to cut off the tags, otherwise you would get the a drive running on this page!
