    Zave,

    Except for the use of the logo,
    I see NO connection with AMD mentioned ANYWHERE on that site OR in it's privacy policy statement
    ( extremely long ).
    It appears to be a company called "Streamload, Inc" in San Diego, Claifornia.

    There is also this:
    Log Files. Streamload uses IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, <big> <big>track User</big> </big> . IP addresses are linked to personally identifiable information for security and operational purposes only.

    ( Emphasis Mine )

    I don't know for sure but all this raises MY alarm signals.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    In addition to Bob's concerns, I can only echo what I said in this thread ( <post:=596,663>post 596,663</post:> ) which you participated in. I know, in that thread you DID say something about the importance of local backup, but I throw it in for reference for other Loungers.
