I use AdBlock Plus for both FF and Chrome. If/when you upgrade from WIN XP, windows seven is pretty nice- this coming from me, a Linux user.
I know you have supported the site and have a red R, but if you disable AdBlock for GDC I'm sure the site authorities would appreciate it. I don't think they get any revenue from the adverts if you block them.
Thanks, that's the one I was thinking of using. Also, the least of my concern is putting money in Vertical Scopes pocket. Like you said, I already am a site supporter and it's the only forum I contributed money to so they should appreciate that.
<Shrugs> Your choice. I'm not a supporter yet, so I pitch in with the ads. Except for those useless intellitext ads, I turned that garbage off. Who thought context-less single word ad triggers were a good idea? If I want to buy something, I'll buy my red R and PM somebody, or shop for it on one of the stores that are linked to GDC.
