Attention MSIE 5.X Users:
There has been some issues raised regarding the favicon.ico
file as being a way for webmasters to detect if you have bookmarked
a site that has this file located on it. You can tell if you
have received the file if when viewing your favorites, you

Please be assured that we in no way exploit this feature of the browser.
The icon file itself is harmless.
However, we do thank you for thinking enough of us to bookmark us!
