Has anyone gone to the Torch website today and after loading the main page (and also Mitchell's and Powell's columns) had a pop-up ad TAKE OVER YOUR MAIN WINDOW??? This travel site ad loaded in the window I was using to read with, including in the little pop-up window, and thus I could not read what was there. So today, I simply kept hitting stop to repeatedly to keep it from loading (and even that only slowed the process down), but tomorrow, I will forego the site altogether.

I got so used to using IE by default, I forgot I had netscape on here also. The same thing happened again today, but the site downloaded fine in netscape. That allowed me to see a code error in one of the pop-ups, which probably caused the whole thing. Looked like a missed quote, but I didn't analyze much. I probably should consider e-mailing the torch to tell them that either UGO is screwing with them, or someone made a boo-boo, but I don't care that much.
I had been using IE 5.0, if anyone cares. Not that I expect it...
