With pleasure.

The main button that has the purple "logo" text currently goes to my
index of Looney Labs Fans forums/groups/sites:

It's a lightly branded Google-powered thing. (http://search.conduit.com)

It goes to a java or javascript/DHTML-based chat webpage:

I've configured it to take the RSS feed from links page of "The Looney
Labs Spot" on fanpop:


Anyone can join that site and contribute links, news, general comments
or rants ("soapbox").

There's also a link to the MySpace group, an email notifier that you can
feed you account details into (I've found it useful for my local POP3
stuff), a weather button (meh) and a pop-up killer (I have it turned off).

Enjoy, Chris J.
