    I can't browse this site, because the TMobile banners ads keep causing my browser to stutter every 30 seconds or so for about 7 seconds. Otherwise, it stutters for 2 seconds every 4 seconds or so. I notice obvious delays in my browser, Mozilla, and the rotating spectrum wheel for OS X keeps popping up. It's extremely frustrating!

    This happening to anyone else?

    Nope. PithHelmet. ;)

    I got tired at being raped by internet advertising, which BTW is probably going to triple in the next 5 years. Between Safari's built-in popup blocker and PithHelmet, I don't see many ads anywhere.

    In safari prefs it allows you to select a style sheet, use this one, it's great!

    The only big problem with using a pop-up blocker and pith helmet is that when you're on a computer without it... well... it sorta freaks you out all over again.

    Odd - when I look at this post, the URL and "this" aren't visible. Oh wait - PithHelmet in action, presumably.

    So, for people using PithHelmet (default config), the URL is http:// tracker.yo-momma.net / tracker.php?id=12. Hopefully, this will be visible to you. Remove the spaces.

    Edit: It's the "tracker" part. PithHelmet users should be able to see the following:
    http://trucker.yo-momma.net/trucker.php?id=12

    Change trucker to tracker in both places...

    An ad-free front page.

    BTW: Here's the banner ad's exact URL, which I've been trying to find since I made the thread: http://http300.content.ru4.com/images/0456/28551.swf

    Well I found an ad-blocker for Mozilla, which, unlike PithHelmet, is completely free. So... :D

    Oh, that is true. My internet is out right now at my apartment ( :mad: ) which is why I'm at school in one of the labs. The popups are insane! I miss my Safari/Pithhelmet :(
