Out of the Blue

I got a few reports about some sort of phony antivirus warning popping up that seems clearly related to an ad here. They seemed to come around a concentrated period, but since I haven't been able to contact the engine room at advertising high command I have yoinked the ad code until I know things are straightened out. Apologies for any problems this situation has caused.

Yoinked Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez and Acleacius.
Play: Underground Invasion.

Science: Dawn probe orbits asteroid Vesta.

Follow-up: The Worst Has Happened: Life After the Death of My Children. Thanks nin via Digg.
