Don't click that link! I did and Avast antivirus popped up saying about malware being blocked. If you haven't got anything to stop it, something nasty may get on your computer.

Yeap... Chrome warned me about it being a unsafe site. So it did not even go far enough to dl a malware onto my PC.

Chrome must be better than Firefox. Maybe I should try it out :D

The wiki page has definitely been hacked though. Both links on the page point to the malware site and I certainly can't imagine Mug, Silver or Ali doing it.

I use Chrome because of the Auto language translation o English for the German Atari sites :thumbs:
I am sure it's hacked... just did not want to say it :mrgreen:
Since this morning my time, it was like that.. with a url pointing to some undesirable site. :(

Great - more childish hacks. Will let Silver Surfer know - with this, the block on the site because (it seems) of our hosting company and me accidentally deleting a user. He's going to be a bit busy!

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

All damage undone - all by some bored twonk who thought it'd be funny to replace a few pages with their spyware page plus bolt on a load more into various TALK areas.

They've been banned but it shows how quick someone can prat around with the Wiki and ruin it for everyone else.

Hi, I'm suggesting that you edit the http:// link from your post to spare
someone grief, and deny the kiddy respect.

Sorry, never tried that Google Bookmarks.
But the normal bookmarks imported from IE8 works.
Is the Google Bookmarks something more?

Well, it's handy. With the Firefox add-on, I can have (and modify/delete) the same bookmarks wherever I am (i.e. office, home, friends place, etc.)

There is a setup sync option but I do not use it.
It say that it help sync up bookmarks on several computers.
May be that's the one.
