But I'm afraid my post in day's are over now.

Except for Brums photo competition.

I know money makes the world go round But too many ads too much even on 50mb connection

I have a 3Mb connection and the Ads don't bother me or spoil my enjoyment of the site.

I have not yet seen an ad on my home computer Win 7 IE 8 but all my works computers are rendered useless on PCA by the ad’s XP IE 7/FF. I’m not too bothered as I don’t have much time at work to visit here.

If the Ad's bother you, then block them!

Easy enough to do, I turn off the blocking about once a week to see if there's anything of interest.

I have had the browser shut down on several occasions this weekend when clicking on links.

I use an add-blocker with Firefox and never get bothered by adds.

Very seldom use I/E don't have an add blocker on there but still get no adds.

I can only assume my security programs remove them.

But having heard the amount of problems some folk have been getting with adds I can see why they get fed up.

Between the new browser,unable to get on PCA at times, and all the problems with the adverts is taking it's toll with users.

Maybe if they do a few free competitions and throw in a few computers and a couple of cars just to keep us happy till they get it sorted might help.

Oops forgot about the recession.
