This is for those who listen to FM radio at home and want the best reception. I bought and installed this loop FM antenna and am amazed at the signal strength and reception quality. It's only $20...
Cool, what's the name or model # ?   Does it use a loaded coil ?

You mean there's a reasonable explanation for it? Can you explain?
That's Javascript that is accessing the DOM (Document Object Model). The easiest way to explain it is the document model is laid out in what is called the document tree. The nodes would be the equivalent of the leaves of the tree. There are parent nodes and child nodes that denote a hierarchical layout to the document. This is used to access elements of the document.

Sorry that response took so long, my system went into file I/O lock.

No worries. Thanks! I get it. At least we can eliminate that lead.  ;)

The concept is very close to hardware Master Slave, or a '1 to many' relationship in a database.

For anyone worried about identity fraud, stalkers, or just want a bit of privacy no guarantee because there are other websites, sources, and methods (and many records are public by laws) but one site that contains a lot of basic information about you offers a way to opt-out so someone searching your name won't find any info. Opt-out takes a few days to process but appears to work (for that site,) the records they scan are mostly public records so someone would still be able, likely, to find out information- but maybe takes them a bit more time and effort.

Thanks albrecht, I'll check it out.  :) I just now did a quick search and found this site: https://familytreenow.pissedconsumer.com/ Which has some negative feedback.

I have no idea who all the pissedconsumers are, I've never heard of that site.

Interesting.  The opt-out "appears" to have worked for me and some others but as I said still suspect and some of those reviews are bad. I did it out of curiosity,  mainly. But also concerned about this crap, for bad purposes. Though for family research etc public records,  old SS records (not NAZI, silly,) church, and vessel records are good for filling in data for family research etc. BUT with so many scammers etc I think should be only for dead people and always opt-out, except for criminal searchds. And at least take some effort beyond some free clicks. But a 'brave new world.'
Hope my post doesnt result in MORE scams or unwanted calls, or worse. So all, don't do without checking or whatever....

hmm. "If it sounds too good to be true" ...

But I started out looking for my dead brother (didn't get much of anything) So I looked up my dead Dad. I was there under "Possible Relatives" No clue where my other siblings went, but Mom and I were listed.

I clicked on my name and let me tell you they had my previous addresses all fucked up. Some weren't there, some were the right starting date but they had me out at all different times. Others were starting on the wrong date, but having me out wrong (or never out) Apparently, I had 5 or 6 residences simultaneously. It was all wrong. But then again, I "locked" or "froze" my credit reporting accounts looong ago (thanks, Clark Howard!) I believe this bamboozled the easy tracking.

I didn't poke around much more but I've never heard of this company "familytreenow" Do you happen to know who might own it?

No, but it got various "local" news segments recently and several articles then in papers. Also suspect, but thought id check out n found on free search more than a HR gal I know whose company uses a paid service or google and local internet accessible public records. So?  But I have more unique name but did some random on others n with a few quicker ck tweaks saw them, family, adddresses etc. The other one that intrigued me was, over Christmas, so many commercials for "dna" and "give as gift" to "find your roots." Or the billboard "who's your daddy?" In a suspect neighborhood. What do those companies do with the info? What implications for others? What family problems? What, potential, political uses?
