works with opera 6.0 beta as well, if you enable popups.  ugh.

i have nothing against business suit losers who couldn't configure a
mouse if it bit them on the butt.

but you'd think they'd be intelligent enough to outsource this kind of
thing to the right kind of people.  it's downright embarrasing.  on the

check out what the prefered font is.

not sure what to make of it -- isn't pcanywhere is a windows daemon?

whatever rick said about LUG websites and frontpage, it's even MORE
embarrasing when it happens on a national scale.
