    Did you know that you can use some web redirectors to go anywhere you want - indirectly? For example, take Microsoft's redirector:

    http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?target=(some URL)

    ...takes you to (some URL) when clicked. (Please don't click the link unless you like seeing "server not found" messages.)

    Using Microsoft to get to Apple:

    http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?target=http://www.apple.com/

    ...goes to Apple.com through Microsoft.com's redirector!

    There really isn't a point to going that way...unless you want to send Microsoft a message by clicking that link a whole bunch of times (to promote Apple).

    It's funny that your sig says you're the president of your school's anarchy club. I'm assuming that's purposefully oxymoronic...
