did anyone else have this happen?

i opened that freaky thing in a new window and after watching the results i came here to comment. sometime after opening it (and i can't say when but i think it was a minute or 2) i heard my hard drive start to spin very fast like when you are loading new software from a cd. this went on for several minutes and i was starting to wonder what the heck was going on. i then noticed that the other window the freaky thing was in was still running. i thought i closed that window? anyway i closed it and within 20 seconds my hard drive started to slow down and eventually in 5 or 8 seconds it returned to it's normal behavior!

i think it freaked out my hard drive too!

That exact thing happened to me yesterday... all on its own.

Oh! Wait... maybe it was visiting here that had something to do with it.
