First of all, if you suspect a link to be dangerous, you absolutely DO NOT post it on the forum for people to click on.  Many users may click on it without thinking.  If you absolutely must post the URL, make it unclickable, which I have done for you.

Second, I am personally not willing to test it, but there is definitely something fishy about the site and it doesn't look like something you can trust.

Third, I don't know if it actually did anything to either of your computers, but it very possibly could.  I would suggest both of you running malware scans immediately and often.
