Does anyone know a place on the web that sells sturdy flush panel mount
cigarette lighter sockets?

Car Toys says that if I can find 4 of them, they can build me a panel for
them and wire it in with fuses to the dash, so I can have 4 instead of 1.

I tried buying a 1-to-4 adapter but the thing is so poorly fused that it
wouldn't even run my air cleaner from the inverter in the back seat. So
Car Toys said they can do it with heavy wiring and put a heavy fuse inline
too.

Those 12 volt sockets are sold at most auto parts stores. You can try
amazon.com and search "12 volt receptacle" or try basspro.com and do the
same search.

Here I was searching Google for cigarette lighter sockets and not
finding them. :)

Here's one source for a known good part:
http://www.napaonline.com/MasterPages/NOLMaster.aspx?PageId=430&PartNum=7821635

I've used these and they work as advertised. The other ones in
their book (I have the "PSA" Parts Service and Accessories 2004 copy)
: 735-2669 and two weatherproof ones for use in truck beds - 782-2236
and 782-1773

Their website sucks rocks for looking things up if they aren't for a
particular car - but if you get a copy of a paper catalog to have the
part numbers on hand, they all pop up with the description and "list
price", which is subject to discounts. Like the AAA SoCal "Show your
Card and Save" program that'll get you 8% or 10% off.

That's the price you pay for fucking around with obscure browsers.

Mozilla/FireFox, the base for Netscape?

Why do they cater to M$ only?

Actually, I 'fooled' it by telling the site I was running IE, and it works
fine...
