I just got a new netbook from ASUS with Linux, Firefox, WiFi, etc. No worry about viruses there either. Great little computer with mass of only one kilogram (2.2 pounds).

Every time I go to a new thread I have to wait for the pop up to "load"....a couple of seconds way too long! It is getting sooooo irritating. I'm tired of the old guy waving to me
I run Firefox as my browser on Linux. This 'pop over' does not play nicely. I often just get a big purple square with no way to close it. I cannot install plugins on my work machine to resolve the issue. I often get frustrated and just go to another site.

I tried firefox, but could not get the popup blockers to load. I gave up and applied the fix to the hosts file. Simple, and took care of the problem.
I'm still using Internet Explorer.

Amen to that. I finally installed ad blocker.....I can't believe this site has all this junk on it lately.

I miss the old days of this site where there was only modest ads and such. As each year passes, it gets more and more out of hand. This last one with the knuckle dragger waving all the time was just way over the top......

We love our advertisers, but that Kellogg's Live Bright guy waving his fingers every time I click a new page is starting to get on my nerves.

He certainly has attracted the MOST attention here. Three threads so far perhaps we need to give wavy guy his own subforum.

Andy can you hear us now???

Many seem to agree as per these other active threads.Maybe they should all be combined.
