Out of the Blue

Tracking down the takeover ad I mentioned last week was apparently tricky due to lack of details on it, but a couple of you supplied the info needed, and I believe this is in the process of being addressed. If there continues to be a problem finding it, I will pull the ad codes until that's worked out, but hopefully a solution is at hand. Apologies for the intrusion, and thanks to all of you who sent information that helped with this.

Wow, that square in Cologne that the Star Wars flash mob hit has acoustics that uncannily resemble a concert hall!

The guys from PC gamer are filming this so I don't know it's from the beta server or what but it's sweet looking. I asked in the forums for specific start time but no answer yet.

Did you email him? A couple of people mentioned that site yesterday, and his lack of comment makes me wonder if he didn't see it.

It's also possible he couldn't get ahold of anyone upstream on a Sunday...

Blue, your site is the only site I have on whitelist. I've been coming here for more than 14 years. I was reading the comments on the top Steam sellers and this ad proclaiming i was the winner of an iphone or ipad completely took over the browser and set itself up in such a way that even hitting the back button didn't work. I had to close the tab to get rid of it.

I know this isn't your fault and i'm not upset at you. However it's really annoying.

The site listed as "http:// bestprizedraw .com" (i put the spaces in so it wouldn't link and it's redirect to "gjetefa .info" and this is their privacy policy "http:// bestprizedraw .com/lander_privacy_policy.html"
