There is no fizucking way I'm clicking that...
2001-07-15 05:44:44 PM  
Ok 9000 is a little overboard. But yes, it's just a whole lot of popups. But it's not some evil trick like comp-u-geek
2001-07-15 05:44:49 PM  
Does that mean 9000 pop-ups?

I'm not going to click this one...
2001-07-15 05:49:24 PM  
Actually it was only about 10 popups. But it seemed like 9000....
farkin' Drew!

The guy who thought that allowing some JavaScript to be executed when someone closes a browser window would be cool should be castrated to prevent his offspring from having similar lame ideas.
2001-07-15 06:04:04 PM  
Doesn't work on the same vein?
2001-07-15 06:28:50 PM  
i didnt know that it meant 9,000 POPUPS, so i clicked on it. now FARK, that was just plain MEAN! but, i figured out a way out of it, so FARK YOU!!!
2001-07-15 06:52:07 PM  
Holy pop-up Batman!

!!!!Who ever submitted this should be shot !!!!!
I had to lock internet activity through zonealarm to get rid of all the damn windows
2001-07-15 07:10:07 PM  
all you gotta do is close em and be fast about it
2001-07-15 07:10:12 PM  
That's why I prefer using the Opera web browser. All browser windows are contained within one program instance. So, if you get 9,000 popups, you can just close 1 window.

With IE, it's like friggin whack-a-mole.
2001-07-15 07:19:45 PM  
*sigh*, my lil 'ol puter just hated that. Had to put her to sleep for a lil while.

Wilbolite, how do you like Opera? Have been considering the change over.
2001-07-15 07:20:24 PM  
I'm sooo drunk, I can't remember... ah shiat. wiggle head..... ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh wiggle........ ahhh....... ah behooven fdhfslhd You dojnsndannnnnnfjklsfbambn hah wqhoa! hahhrhhfa!
2001-07-15 07:21:57 PM  
I just closed windows really fast. Worked just fine.
2001-07-15 07:22:19 PM  
2001-07-15 07:37:19 PM  
It's like hitting a pr0n site.

Is there some way to turn that little feature off in IE?
2001-07-15 07:43:14 PM  
Careful gargoyle, last time I said I was looking for it ppl biatched at me.
2001-07-15 07:46:11 PM  

Been lovin' Opera... The free vsn has an add banner in the upper right corner, but it's rather ignorable and non-intrusive...

I like it's look & feel much better than IE. These guys put together a nice little program. Give it a download and a try! You can always uninstall it if you don't like it (unlike another browser out there).
2001-07-15 08:02:03 PM  
I've used opera for months now. There is very little it doesn't work with anymore.
2001-07-15 08:20:53 PM  
Hooray for Opera! I use it at work (Windows) and home (Linux).. so sweet..
2001-07-15 08:40:34 PM  
opera wont work with some forms' editboxes, but its pretty alright mousewheel settings though so it pages down for me on every mousewheel roll (I HATE THAT). :(
2001-07-15 08:47:09 PM  
Opera Kicks ass!
You can get a crack for the ads...
2001-07-15 08:54:44 PM  
FARKIN THING CRASHED MY COMPUTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2001-07-15 09:14:23 PM  
I hate you.
2001-07-15 09:17:26 PM  
The funny thing about it is how many people have clicked it... hahaha!
2001-07-15 09:28:00 PM  
Hi, my name is cranky and I'm a dumbass.

I thought that said 9000 WIDOWS not WINDOWS. Either way I'm glad I use a pop up killer =].
2001-07-15 09:36:46 PM  
In other news,

don't click that.. but I think alt-f4 does work on it
2001-07-15 09:38:05 PM  
Gargoyle:If you are in IE, you can change the browser to work offline if you get endless pop-ups and stuff... ie. like crack/warez/p0rn sites... kinda kills the browser from loading anything... it'll ask if you want to stay offline.. just say yes. solves the problem quick.

I've used Opera and it's alright, but it misses some of the nice formating that IE displays. Opera will probably be the next competator in the free browser market since netscape won't be producing a browser anymore. (n\Not that this is an actualy loss. Their last version blew hardcore.)

2001-07-15 09:41:48 PM  
Wow, 810 clicks x 9000 windows = a grand total of 7,290,000 windows!
2001-07-15 10:04:46 PM  
Gee that was fun. At least I got to load up my POW list with lots of banner ads to kill. But I still think whoever posted that should have their nuts ripped off. Stupid farking internet.
2001-07-15 10:30:49 PM  
Maybe the goddamn title of that link should have been CLICK HERE FOR A WHOLE BUNCH OF POPUP ADS!!!!!

2001-07-15 10:31:53 PM  
Wilbolite----Whack-a-mole!! Hilarious man. Exactly right.

Time to run Ad-Aware again.
2001-07-15 10:32:09 PM  
Erm, re: the above.

I've come to the conclusion that my comments above may have been a little too strongley wording. For that, you have my sincerest apologises.

2001-07-15 10:44:04 PM  
I can't find that cyber army link that actually CRASHES your computer (blue screen of death, then it restarts itself). Too bad, really. I wanted to be an asshole and submit something like that so the thousands of farkers that visit fark, can have their computers crash.
2001-07-15 10:58:20 PM  
whats the big deal, hold down alt-f4, hit cancel to shutdown, open up ur favorite browser, come back to fark and read the next article. i suspected some stupid pop-up add thin, so i just held downalt-f4.....pretty simple.
2001-07-15 11:57:23 PM  
Paulseta - thanks for pointing that out. And the easy way out is to kill your instances of the browser (on a Winblowz system). Nice, simple and effective.
2001-07-16 12:13:17 AM  
What a total asshole!
2001-07-16 12:14:46 AM  
Why did you inflict such evil upon the house of Drew???WHY????? I thought we were brothers. I though you lovvvvved us.
2001-07-16 12:57:18 AM  
Christ Almighty! What imbecile submitted this site? I closed windows for over three minutes before I just got pissed and turned off the goddam PC. Of course, I had to sit through all that ScanDisk jazz...but it was better than the nightmare this URL generated. Sheesh!
2001-07-16 01:03:13 AM  
Thanks a lot assneck. I almost had to shut down a broadcasting Wave Cart program at work (TV station) cuz of that. you SUCK!
2001-07-16 01:04:45 AM  
PEOPLE OF FARK!!! LISTEN TO ME GOD DAMMMMMMMEOT! In IE set the mother farking internet zone to disable everything. You'll never have this problem again.
2001-07-16 01:24:20 AM  
Hey, at least none of the ads were X10 ads. I've had, in the course of a month, over 60 X10 ads come up. And what's really bad is their ad campaign. Notice how they always have the suggestion "bedroom" for placement of the camera? Or the pictures of girls in bathing suits? Hmm...
2001-07-16 01:27:17 AM  

I have multiple times before voiced my unhappiness with browser bombs.
This link sucks! Shame.

2001-07-16 01:27:21 AM  
When that shiat happens just hold ALT-F4. It will close all windows that are open faster than they can pop up. Very handy when looking at boobies at work, etc. hehe!
2001-07-16 02:00:00 AM  
drew...... kill you......
2001-07-16 02:26:40 AM  
Oceanwave: fark yes! Those things are _.-=REALLY=-._ beginning to piss me off! [beavis voice] Yagagagagagaga! mmmmmmmmmmMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

ok... I'm calmish now.
2001-07-16 02:52:18 AM  
I hope you closed your bold tags

I didn't really have too many problems with this. I go to warez sites often with IE so I've gotten used to it.
2001-07-16 03:12:14 AM  
Aggrop, why the hell are you browsing the internet (much less clicking a 9000 Windows link) on a computer that is broadcasting with Wave Cart???? Get back to work!
2001-07-16 03:24:04 AM  
Hmmm.... first a bar code design, and now pop-up window spam... what is happening to the beloved FARK?

Pop-up killer? Where can I get one of those for IE?

And is Opera freeware yet?
