Does anyone know how to stop the flashing adverts (LD Mountaincentre for starters!) at the top of the screen?

Feels like I'm doing 14 rounds with the papparazzi or maybe Mr Caine in The Ipcress file!

check the ads out as if you buy a magazine they are 65% ads the ads on websites are tailored to what you are looking at so can be very beneficial!

or not... I ignore ads. I don;t store 3rd party cookies for sites that do that kind of thing. One that really surprised me was a television GEC one for a CAT scanner. Oh yes, must get me a CAT scanner tonight. Do you do discount? Ooh great I'll have 2.

Rachel, which blocker do you use?

It would be barable if they didn't flash, and moced a lot more slowly, you'd still notice them of course.
now where the hellz the other sock gone...

Websites are not cheap and without ads to generate money you would have no website!

I know about you, so there's no need to advertise to me. I know where you live too.

Hey everyone, Jonny and Lisas place is really ace and they are superstars. Is that OK?

Yours were OK to be fair, it just gets a bit excessive when you get a disco of side banner and top banner all fighting for my attention. Just gets a bit much sometimes. I reminds me of the times when I was learning to code websites from scratch 12 years ago and animated gifs were all the rage.
