    Google adverts

    Well every week we used to block adverts that we thought were over tagetting us or not relevant to the site, then believe it or not we hit our limit on how many we are allowed to block, so to block the new ones we had to allow others back on, now looking round the forum we got google targetting us with Thai Gmails invites, wonder what they would do if we blocked that one

    I think everyone has Adblock installed in their Firefox.

    I am able to peruse google advertisments and find them to be both educational and stimulating when compare to Jarvis ramblings.

    Strangely, IE7 doesn't like my PC.

    I have adblock plus on Firefox and I can't remember the last time I saw an add. In fact when I use someone else's PC and an advert comes up I go 'Whoa what the bloody hell is that' and feel all of a hot flush. That said I accidentally clicked on an add on the Guardian page the other day and it was for a solar powered re-charger for mobile phones and the like - A great idea I thought - And if there wasn't any sun one could just plug in a lamp and shine it at the solar panels. Foolproof.
    Back off Margaret, you're on a sugar rush!
