Yes...glad you posted thought I was fuc*ing up my work computer. Happening from home too, usually just the first time I load the page.

See that is why I use a Mac. 7 years running with the same laptop and never once had a virus or threat. Hell I'm not even sure if it has any anti virus software on the thing, I just turn it on each day and it works like the first time I used it.

And good thing too rcarter. You've got enough viruses to deal with thanks to an illustrious career. Mac all the way.
Can you give me any more details or take a screenshot.
You can send us an email at info at swellinfo.com.
I'm not aware of anything, but we can look into it further.

Are you sure it wasn't a stupid misleading ad that was showing up?
Possibly an ad coming from a various ad network that we are unaware about.
The frequency of showing up once, the first time you come on, makes it sound like an ad.
Google, shows the site as safe:
Take a screenshot if it shows up again.
If its an ad, I"ll get it removed.

how to do screen shots in Belmar, NJ:
first hit the 'print screen' button on the top right of your keyboard- you might have to use the shift key or a FN or function key at the same time...
second- open Microsoft word or anything like that- even a paint program- then right click and click on 'Paste' kinda like cut and paste.
That's it. that's how we do it in Belmar, NJ - where the waves are always head hi btw... if you have a n apple- idk how...
