I can relate to that in two ways, I was in the USN for 8 years, on the Enterprise the radio room was located on the 3rd deck under the catapolts.. talk about a daily headache... we didnt have guns but the seals would come up for crypto with guns sometimes.

When I was reserve I had to do something like that in Sicily, we flew from Sig to Souda Bay on a helecopter was pushed out and setup a remote communications site for 4 days in the blistering summer. Was fun.

I would rather do all that over again right now than deal with corp. bs, at least the stuff in the navy was fun!

Bob - I have been on the site off and on pretty regularly the past few days and haven't seen either of those ads. It seems unlikely the site owner would run them based on the content.

You probably want to give your machine a good scan for adware. It certainly looks like something is hijacking the ads in your browser.

JMHO...

I did 4 years in Navy, rode a plane guard DE, then worked for the Navy for another 25. Since you were a Radioman did you have any experience with the R-392 receiver, I have 3 of them at the house, and they are a beast.

I didnt deal with the radio equipment much, I was an Administrator for the SiPer network that was located in that area, but its very likely, all that stuff in there was massive, I dealt with a weird system that use FM, I used to have to change the amplifier, but again it was all computer controlled

If you are seeing true pop-ups, then you may have some malware on your pc as we a re a pop-up free zone. But if these are ads being fed by google, let us know. We would need to know the url (web address) that they link to as well as the link properties. You can find the link properties by right clicking on the ad and looking at the properties in the drop down menu you see. Google does some geo targeting in their advertising and so while it's possible these are google ads, we may not all be seeing them. Perhaps not every region of the country needs this product?

Apparently completely resistance was impossible; a moderator opens the door.

It might not be region that provides a market for the product. An enormous amount of information is collected on everyone by marketing dep'ts every day and then ads are targeted to specific individuals. I haven't seen any such popups (hmmm, "popups"). The moderator made me do it.

Gene, you are correct it is obvious that the ads are directed at specific individuals in need of the offered treatment. I personally can attest to this as I received a popup offering a size reduction technique.

Janet,

You can right click on the two that I pasted on the junk post, the info is there. The ads were appearing much as the "live bright guy"
Sorry I'm not as savvy as some here, scanned my computer and did a restore, so far the ads have not re-appeared. SFSG.

Thanks all for your help.

If you see them again - right click on the live ads - as opposed to the saved files. That's the info we need. to track this down. you will get a long string of characters.
