PNAP-BSN-PROMO-RM-01 (NET-66-151-179-128-1) 220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168 The promosis.com site, however, is an all flash site that says they've developed promo campaigns for Bose, Oracle, art.com, Forbes etc. Looks legit .. Any idea? Something that works when NS is changed couldnt be spyware on the guy's PC though he is a newbie to linux, and is surfing the net using firefox on a windows PC -- Suresh Ramasubramanian (firstname.lastname@example.org)
