Son-of-a-gun. I had my popup blocker turned off (a legacy of a webinar that I had attended) and I clicked the link in this blog entry.

All the new windows... well, it was watching fireworks explode on my screen.

Silly me... but a warning in the blog entry to make sure your popup blocker is turned on is suggested.
