09:56 pm - Spyware: clearly Republican in nature
mcgovern76: look at this thing: http://www.artfair.org/index.htm
mcgovern76: they shut down this entire town for it
Jimbosworldorg: ... I can't believe nobody's reserved www.artfag.com
mcgovern76: it dumps you at herpesdate.com
Jimbosworldorg: does it?
Jimbosworldorg: it didn't do anything at all for me
mcgovern76: Herpes? STD? HSV?
You're not alone!

Welcome to MPwH - the place where great friendships are mad
mcgovern76: are you trying to tell me something?
Jimbosworldorg: uh, no
Jimbosworldorg: I just thought that if there WAS anything at artfag.com, it would probably be amusing
mcgovern76: and as it turns out, it is!
Jimbosworldorg: :: furrows brow ::
Jimbosworldorg: something is strange here
Jimbosworldorg: you should NOT be getting herpesdate.com
Jimbosworldorg: there really isn't anything answering for www.artfag.com
Jimbosworldorg: (I run my own nameserver that queries the internet root servers)
Jimbosworldorg: I think you must have spyware that's sending you to herpesdate instead of to a 404 or something
mcgovern76: somebody wants me to have... herpes?
Jimbosworldorg: tell me what your DNS server setting is
mcgovern76: DNS
Jimbosworldorg: you definitely have spyware.
Jimbosworldorg: because that very nameserver returns no result for www.artfag.com.
Jimbosworldorg: apparently, your spyware equates "fag" with "herpes"
mcgovern76: now THAT is annoying.
mcgovern76: damn, why did the internet have to get so... annoying?

Current Mood: irritated
Current Music: Christopher Walken - Need More COWBELL

Ah, the Ann Arbor Art Fair...it loses its appeal FAST when you live in Ann Arbor, as I do. The Art Fag sounds interesting, though.
