Out of the Blue

Argh -- I hate oversleeping! Oh well, at least there weren't any presents on the floor from the puppy, who offers the occasional scatological editorial about late starts on such occasions.

We certainly are in the heart of the pre-E3 period I recently referenced, where a heavier rush of announcements are forthcoming than at the actual show itself. According to some quick calculations, it will be just seven years before this gets so early that the annual rush of game announcements will actually start immediately after E3 ends, and the year following new game announcements will actually take place during the show again. Or maybe not.

Play Time: Nerdvana. Thanks Ant.

It really helps with Blue's News and other web sites which have ads.

Could you imagine a similar service for magazines or newspapers?

Funny that we pay for those and they have advertising and we don't really complain about that.

I wonder when the house of cards that is internet advertising will finally collapse in on itself, sucking down thousands of sites with it, leaving only a super duper black hole behind.

(Wow, that was a run on...),

I cannot say how his deals are designed, one would presume he receives more money for each advertisement that is clicked on rather than just seen, but I would expect some of the ad blockers to cause the loss of money for the advertisements that are tracked via cookies and what not.

Tired (x_X),

Ads Gone is the best thing for the 'net. It really helps with Blue's News and other web sites which have ads.

The possible pain, suffering and sacrifice of discovery are by no means an excuse to remain ignorant.

The bartering of things sought earned are by a means which only little men can abide by and hope to achieve.

While I'm all for gratuitous cleavage and posterior, the ads for this movie are getting annoying. They're EVERYWHERE on the net. Earlier today I picked up a Geocities site on a search and even it had one. And then there's the 4 or 5 different ads they have running on TV every other commercial break. Bah, maybe I'm just getting old and realizing the fact I'm no longer "spring break" material ;).

Hmm...I did not make any mention of the effort needed to close the pop up.

Oh wait, it is just you, Soupkin.

Wondering what your (secret) edit was for :),
