Java should be enabled. There are sound files on the site. They aren't small but they won't open along with a page and bog down a server in the process. There are no pop-ups and and we won't send out any junk e-mails. The counter is provided by Web Counter Stats. Their link to the page that acts as a sponsor for the counter is a nice one and worth looking at.
That's about it except to say welcome to the site and enjoy your visit.
