The site looks to have some Java or Javascript code. Such might be hostile and I'll look at it later with a machine I have to inspect hostile sites.

Why go there?

The site is "heavy" with javascript and maybe a flash object.

Your machine would have to be uptodate with a current browser and free from PARASITES to function displaying such a web site.

Parasites? ->
Current Web Broswer? That would be IE 6.0 or Mozilla or your choice. IE 5.5 and prior are now far too exploitable and I find it best to just state so and move on.
