Well if you want more reasons to convert, Firefox is easier to use, more efficient to use, safer to operate, nicer to look at, more customizable... etc etc etc. Seriously, you won't know how nice it is until you try it. The only people still saying IE's better work for Microsoft.

I may just do that...these new positions for the ads are not only annoying, but they make the forum very crowded. It makes this place seem like one of those free website places (like geocities or freewebs) where there are ads frickin everywhere you go.

I too also lose the post reply button!

it has got so bad I have finally blocked them

How is it possible to block them, moogle? They are getting on my nerves too.


go to Windows Run by either clicking on the start menu and clicking on Run/Execute, or if you have a WinKey on your keyboard, pressing that together with R (WinKey+R)
and then entering:
notepad %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\HOSTS

127.0.0.1 pagead2.googlesyndication.com
127.0.0.1 pagead1.googlesyndication.com
127.0.0.1 pagead.googlesyndication.com
127.0.0.1 googlesyndication.com
127.0.0.1 www.googlesyndication.com

and save!


no more google ads!

(I use avant browser which is based on ie)

For those that use firefox, I recommend adblock plus over regular adblock.

I find it does a better job, particularly with flash.

i hear you. As i said, i'm experimenting with the ads, to find the line between annoying and acceptable and invisible to visible. Obviously i crossed the line

My rule of thumb is that if i find something annoying myself i don't want it. (that's why there will never be any popups on the site)
I must admit that, what at first looked nice, has started to annoy me as well.

So in a short while there will be less ads, or at least placed less annoyingly.
i'm currently changing the layout on the test forum.

thank you for bearing with me.

ofcourse if you use an adblocker you won't need this information

You shouldn't have copied and posted over everything else that was a no-no.

You should have just added them at the bottom.

reopen the file and add:

127.0.0.1 localhost

at the top and save. Make sure it doesn't save as a txt file though.
