I'm using Explorer with my AVG tool bar for now. Firefox is tough! but after the rootkit I had earlier this year I'll put up with the warnings.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

if you want to find out what's going on - please read above. the site has not been hacked and is not virus infected. google detected an advertisers code who was not behaving properly and flagged the site. we have since identified and removed the code and asked google to rechceck the site to remove their flag.

I really, really wish people would take a moment to resize images to something vaguely reasonable, so those of us not using 50" wide-screen TVs for display devices didn't end-up having to scroll sideways to view the rest of the content on a page.

Unless Google incorrectly flagged the suspect code, this would not be Google's fault. Instead it would be the fault of whomever created and whomever launched the offending code.

we are well aware the flag is still there. we requested google rescan the site, but it's like calling Microsoft and asking them when they're going to do something. we have no control over google. the flag will be there until google sees fits to remove it. In the meantime use Microsoft Internet Explorer or Google's own web browser.
