    Steve, I don't object to ads, I know the revenue source is needed, but there's a blinking banner ad that is driving me nuts. It doesn't blink a few times and stop, it just endlessly blinks, changing color from blue to yellow (Free record check on used car). It's very annoying.

    Can we turn that thing off??

    Here's a trick that works for most "blinking" type ads. Once the page has finished loading, hit the escape key. That will stop animated .gif files from continuing. That's the file type used for most blinking type stuff. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I turn 'em off all the time, as I find them extremely distracting.

    download Ad Muncher, its small and free, if you cant find it then lemme know and i can send it to you, it deletes ads and lal kinds of annoyances on the net, pop ups too, automatic refreshes, also stuff that pops up when you exit some pages/sites, imbedded sound files, etc etc, also has an IP scrambler but i dont know how to set it up, its great /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif its entire folder is only 178 KB

    If you hit F5 the page will refresh and a different ad will load.

    Ren-Ay

    When I was a kid I swore I was gonna change my name when I turned 18...then I couldn't think what I wanted to change it to and finally just put up with it./forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    It's an awful name to have, and it wasn't any fun as a kid either.
