Oh, damn...I was downloading stuff in the links from Holowan in the KOTOR region and got the same thing--almost like it was attached to some of the downloads at their sites.

Will do. Thanks. Had no idea you were looking for it, I just assumed it was my computer and all the places I've been to. Now I know what to look out for.
