    Let's see how long you can look at this web site before your eyes explode right out of your head...

    DiVx [​IMG] is a "mpeg like" compression system for video instead of audio, frequently used for transferring "rips" of TV shows & films over the 'net, though it is used for other things. They "pinched" the name from divx in a rather annoying fashion.

    DIVX is the Circuit City DVD system.

    God that is bad! It hurt after looking for like 5 seconds. Must have been designed by the MPAA. [​IMG]

    Ouch! That DIVX site is bad.

    But, Eric, I truly have seen worse. At least your links are obvious -- check out my page (http://mywebpages.comcast.net/vidyarthi) for a lesson in unclear navigation.

    No. Oh no. THIS is the world's worst web site. At least they're doing it on purpose. [​IMG]

    Wow, that site hurt my eyes!

    It reminded me of a SPAM email I received about a year ago that was so bad that I converted it to a web page and put it up on my site for a while. This thread inspired me to put it back up for you to "enjoy." Check it out:
