1. Looked at it with Mozilla and didn't accept any cookies. BIZARRE that the first page wants to set cookies, so I'm not going there anymore.

2. NO POPUPS at all with Mozilla. Are you sure your machine is free for the usual PARASITES? I collected five scanning tools in what I dubbed the Anti-Parasite Suite at http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6132-0.html?forumID=32&threadID=1313&start=0 which detects most parasites that cause such misbehaviour.

I don't get a pop-up, but it did try to set a cookie ("pv") on my machine. Had you intended it to set cookies? If not, that might be worth checking out.

The page was two thirds of screen width, and about 1? screens high on my display (Mozilla 1.6a, 1024 x 768).
