alright, i'm leary of jumping in because this report of bugginess may
not come across as a straight fact reporting, and might be co-opted
into a lovely damning of the technology or the site...

disclaimer aside, the site does not render at all, save for a
yellowed background color, in IE 5.50.4134.0600 or in Opera 6.01
build 1041, both on win2k... it doesn't even *ask* if i want to
refuse the Flash ActiveX control in IE (i have it set to prompt)...

i'd wade through the code to see if i can identify it, but i'm still
packing for SXSW and have to be up way too early...

incidentally, it displays fine, first try, in Lynx... although
there's a missing alt at the bottom of the page and those two image
maps are kinda useless in Lynx... and select menus for nav in Lynx
are always a bummer...
