It's on the site. You can set your browser to block ads.

I have considerations about this whole thing...

The ads are here to support the site. With many websites, there are advertisers who will pay the site owner a small amount every time someone clicks on their ad. This is great since it's a nice easy way to generate income for the web site owner - and these sites are expensive to maintain.

I generally have no problem with ads popping up here - but when the ad starts with an obnoxious nerd waving his hands in my face it becomes extremely annoying.

They're made out of brains and fish oil and artificial flavors right? Just like bran cereal is made out of bran. Kee Kee might like it, or maybe Mikey will eat it. He'll eat anything.

The hand-waving guy had to go!

I use Opera for a browser. To block content, right-click on a page and select "Block content". You will be able to "check" the items you want blocked.

I had to block content on the portal, forum pages, and once in a thread to block all the ads I would normally see. It even blocked the classified peel-ad in the upper right corner.

That makes me wonder... why do those of us who are paid supporters even have to see any of these ads.

Because, all though we know we are very special, The rest of the world just hasn't come to that realization yet

Shame on them

I hit the link in post #51 to download firefox. I get to download complete.
Then step 2 says hit continue. There is no continue to hit. What am I doing wrong? What am I missing?
Like I've said more than once, I am computer STUPID. But I do'nt get it.

There should be and install icon on your desktop or were you told it to download. Double click this and it will start the install... You can download it again to see where it is being saved or, when downloading you can chose to open it automatically after it down loads.

The download window shows that it is 100% downloaded but no install wizard appears with a continue button. The prompt says press continue but I do'nt see any continue anywhere. It is as if I am left hanging between step 2 and step 3 with nowhere to go. Also I have no clue what it means when asked, what program would you like to open this with. No clue being the key phrase here. If not for Airforums I could easily take a sledgehammer to this machine right now and walk away and forget about computers forever. I'm not even frustrated with it, it is just that I do not understand this stuff.
