Got some weird stuff going to other forums, and thought I'd share them with you...

Take a look: http://www.thefever.com/AYB2.swf

You can read an explanation here (http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/28/17122.html).

And for something completely unrelated, there's this article (http://support.microsoft.com&=support&=kb&=articles@hwnd.net/pub/mskb/Q209354.asp) (warning: strong language used)...

 Yes, I've pressed that button, like, a hundred times.
 You know, for a hotline, you're not so hot?
 Wait, what is that in the background?

Here, the image below should explain it a little bit more.

It's screenshot from an actual game that Sega released in the US in the early 1990's:
