Why? So you can shoot your monitor or speakers? Or yourself in the head? Not sure I understand you.

Because you're obtuse.



There will come a moment when you have the chance to do the right thing.

I love those moments. I like to wave at them as they pass by.

I get nothing as well.

This comes up all the time. And everyone comes up with a million ways to stop ads. (Which I'm sure are all effective).

Just use firefox and an adblocking hosts file such as this:

http://www.everythingisnt.com/hosts.html

Install the Flashblock plugin if you want (which I do) or any of the gazillion ad blocker suggestions that have been mentioned here a million times.

If you still have problems run SpyBot or AdAware. And keep complaining to Blue if you have to (if you're on a corporate network and can't change anything) as he has obviously been more than willing to remove offensive and/or obnoxious and irritating ads for the past several years. Just be nice about it, I'm sure he'll accomodate you.

I'm using adblock and nothing has changed from last week or last month. No ads at all...
I'm using adblock plus (FTW ;P) and no adverts, nothing.

Ehh, I have not been geting any popups. I just use FireFox, not extra ad blocking software installed.

Actually I haven't been getting them either, and I'm using IE with all ad-blocking turned off.

Clearly there is a problem, however. I am looking into getting this cleared up.

My apologies.

I'm getting popup-window type ads as well as pop"over" ads.. I don't mind the former so much, but with the latter, in some cases, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to find the "close" button/area.

Will it stop me from visiting? Of course not.

Ya I'm pretty much right on par with all that...

What's even better though, is ones like snakes that hide the cursor when you mouse over... Or the ones that open the site when you click on close... Sometimes it's best just to click it to get it the fuck out of the way : ) Or scroll down heh...

Btw... why isn't your Akpuk Lienad char named Akpuk Leinad?

These popups really stink. Before, Firefox would block them and you'd only see them if you used IE. But now they appear for Firefox users too ! C'mon Blue, there's gotta be a better form of advertising. They are extremely intrusive and a pain in the ass.

15. On frolicking... Aug 13, 2006, 01:14 Dan =0)
 
I went to a friend's (well, both friends' - husband&wife now) wedding tonight. It was at the gorgeous Tewksbury Country Club in Mass.

SST: I asked a girl to dance - turns out she's a coworker of the bride's. We were both rusty but made the best of it, then we chatted for a little bit afterward - though I did with her some time beforehand as well. Funny thing is I remarked, as we were out in the back area by the golf course/pools, "this place is gorgeous". We both must have been slightly deaf from all the rather loud music, because she had asked 'what?' several times... and may have thought I'd said something else/someone was gorgeous...

Anywho, overall a great night. And, I was sober the entire time... heh. (Yes, I probably looked like a bit of a fool on the floor, but I didn't care or ham it up too much.)

They've said that they plan on doing an East Coast PAX too. No more details beyond that, though.
