Not me -- one of the guys in the building -- I have no idea what they are -- I just remembered seeing them with this purple fluorescent light -- it struck me that the UV would be bad for his eyes, but he said he got the light from Wal-Mart and there was no warning with it and my balls didn't glow so I assume there isn't much UV...

Thanks Carno...the firefox site has no info on whether it'll run on W2000. I'm trying to fire up a PC with XP but not having a lot of luck as yet.
