Spam Roast

Haha, you know your LakeCountyEye has run out of ideas when you see a single rumor about Mark Curran stretched out into a five-part story-arc all over this blog. A big part of the problem is that most story ideas published here are cadged from the McHenryCountyBlog. However, if Google is to be believed, it may not be safe to visit that blog, because ...

... the McHenryCountyBlog site may be compromised.

Operatives who (out of desperation or foolhardiness or something) need to see the McHenryCountyBlog, are advised to observe some common-sense safety measures. It's always better to be safe than to be sorry -- who wants to download some yucky virus that may go viral on them? So be sure to disable your browser's scripting before visiting the McHenryCountyBlog.

For those operatives unfamiliar with the innards of their browser, it's easy to disable scripting. Here is how it's done on Internet Explorer:
  1. Open the "Tools" menu.
  2. Select "Internet Options", to open the Internet Options dialog box.
  3. Click the "Security" tab.
  4. Click the "Internet" symbol.
  5. Click the "Custom Level" button, to open the Security Settings dialog box.
  6. In the Settings list, scroll down to "Scripting".
  7. Under Active Scripting, click the radio button to the left of "Disable", so that a coloured dot appears in it.
  8. Click "OK" to close the Security Settings dialog box.
  9. Click "Yes" in the Warning! message box.
  10. Click "OK" to close the Internet Options dialog box.

Enabling and disabling JavaScript
Instructions for other browsers are also available at the link above.

Once your scripting is disabled, you should be relatively safe to browse over to the McHenryCountyBlog ...

Pro-Life Pig Roast
When scripting is turned off, the hidden scripts on the McHenryCountyBlog are rendered as visible hyperlinks:
Be careful -- don't click any of those links!

It is unclear to your LakeCountyEye if this means the Viagra and Cialis was obtainable at the Pro-Life Pig Roast -- or for that matter, the Fast Cash Payday Loans?
