And where is this wonderful website? How would it get the MAC address of
my home PC which I connect via a modem and doesn't even have a NIC?

I suspect the only way you could do this would be with a Javascript or
Java program which runs in the client and somehow extracts this from the
system (though you'd need to be a real Java wizard to do that). The MAC
address of the client is certainly not in the HTTP request.
