Will someone try this out and make sure I'm not going out of my mind...

Look at the upper right. There are two links.

-Dream Machine
-KAOS

When you click on the KAOS link, you get more options and can move on from there.

When you click on the Dream Machine link, you get the Maximum PC pointer (just like the one in the upper left), but clicking that provides nothing more.

They both appear to be pointing to the same place, but the one on the right does nothing. :)

if im understanding what ur trying to figure out, instead of just clicking them, open them in a new window (or tab) for some reason that's a little frame and when u click the links, they load in that little frame. so what ur seeing when u click on the dream machine link is the maximum pc page loading again in that little frame.

Correct, but their goal, if I'm not mistaken was to lead the user to the Dream Machine Tour. The way this site is designed, the entire upper left hand side links to the home page. When you click the upper right (dream Machine Link), it loads the upper left. That defeats the purpose. Because once done, the user basically refreashes the home page in a wondow only large enough to refreash the home page link.

Get it?

If not, let me try this. :o)

Try to get to the Dream Machine Tour via the link provided in the upper right, without opening new windows.

:)

They should both be opening in a new window. I'll let the authorities know.

Ewwww...that's nasty! Not even hitting the browser's "back" button helps.

If you haven't tried it, do it. It's fun.

I said it and it stuck???

Naw, I don't know how it got coined. I am possibly mis-using it anyways. Its when you forget a parent tag or what not and you have frames nesting in each other that are not supposed to be - sometimes from two different sites. Imagine a Delphi frameset inside the MaxPC forum page. Its hard to catch 'cuz a validator won't see it. Its not a broken link or anything so it "looks" ok - even when you test it might look OK until you test it with the full page.
