Here’s An Interesting Website

http://acnow.net/www.castanet.net

I’m not sure what the deal is with this web page, but it features Castanet. It didn’t attack my computer or anything, so I think we’re good there.

Can any of you read the text? I sure can’t. Is it maybe a translation page for people from East Asia?

There’s a mystery afoot...
Moin!

That site definitely has nothing to do with us. It looks to be some sort of search/business-directory type of site and seems harmless to me. Most likely auto-generated just to collect a few bucks in Google Ad revenue from people stumbling upon it.

You can put any website in there and it will display similar info. For example:
http://acnow.net/www.cbc.ca
http://acnow.net/www.microsoft.com
http://acnow.net/www.google.ca
etc...

Thanks for the info, Troy. I'm not very internet savvy, though young. In case it was something bad, I figured it would help to let the staff know.
