hey rellik420!, Yeah I noticed that too myself a while back. And I can tell you that my old PC that I had runs quite well and is free (from what I can tell) from viruses... Jeb is a wonderful artist, and was a very active participant  on the old forum here. If anything you should check out some of his newest work. I think his site is http://www.jeb.8k.com I don't know if or when he is going to update it. I havn't seen him on Anim8or in a while. Any way hope that answers your question.

Having malicious scripts plugged into your site is one of the hazards of using free webhosting that requires/forces ads to be placed in your web pages. You'll find this kind of thing happening a lot and it's "normal". You have to have some awareness when browsing websites from free webhosts or sites that have a lot of ads and scripts on their pages. Just keep an updated antivirus program and be smart when you browse and you'll be alright.

I guess Jeb's kinda MIA, his cgtalk/cgsociety portfolio hasn't been updated in a while and his other site, ramp02.com has gone to the dogs, so let's hope he's just been way too busy with studio work to update anything ;)

Good point there Raxx, that and I agree with what you said about Jeb. As you were also around quite a bit when Jeb was also around. And actually I havnt seen you around in the longest either! So, welcome back Raxx! Prolly a bit late but hey, worth the effort.
