It seems you need Fyrefawkz to load the site. No go with Links, neither with
nor without JavaScript. That seems a wee bit counter-productive for this kind
of petition.

MS, eBay, Paypal, Google. What is your favourite monopoly?

I can't load the site, maybe it answers this but I wonder what's going to
happen with the money if NVidia says "nay"? Instead of money, I'd be willing to
donate my NVidia GF 440MX modulo shipping costs. It's too loud, too hawt, too
blurry for my purposes.
