Does anyone see ads? I can no longer see them. I don't think I changed anything, and they were working yesterday.

Okay, I'm at home and I see them now. They were not working on my work computer, even after removing the ad blockers. Not in Firefox, not on IE. :?:

Hi, I am just a new guy here, but since I was asked . . . . ads are fine by me ! I have seen all the effort and the help 'Mr' Jack is to the members here and agree 100% with other members comments that if the ads will generate a little 'revenue' , he sure deserves it . . . . .

Just saw an ad on here for Windows OS with free license. Thought I'd check it out and my security program blocked it and identified it as a dangerous page.

I'd need the URL of the ad in order to research it. It is true that Microsoft will be offering a free upgrade to Windows 10 for current 8.0/8.1 users.

I had read something about a free Windows upgrade. That's why I was checking it out. If I see it again I'll copy and paste you the URL.

Jack, I think you are managing their ad's very nicely. I will deal with ignoring most of them. I have clicked on a couple. Maybe will click on a couple more if it helps to add a little income.

Only if it's something that interests you.

Thanks.

Ads are gone, they've been gone since about January of 2018. The site needs occasional software updates, and the ad software just complicates the process, and the ad revenue wasn't worth the effort. So no need for ad blocker.

On the other hand, if you ARE seeing ads here, they're not ours. Your browser has been hijacked by some sort of malware. That really does happen!
