    How does Google ads do it?

    For the first time ever, I got banner ads on the main Foo page for the MGM Grand hotel in Vegas. What is weird, is that I am going to Vegas tomorow. Guess where I'm staying? Yup, the MGM. I really need to suck it up and pay to get rid of these ads that are reading my mind.

    paying is worth it, but in the meantime you can wear an aluminum foil cap to block the mind reading.

    data mining.
    just need to look at your cookies and they'll know what you want.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    You did mention in jsharr's bass sitter thread that you were going to go to Las Vegas. Bet you that banner ad popped up after that. I posted something or other about some silly school in OH once, and then every ad on the main Foo page pertained to OH in some way or another.

    You can either upgrade your membership to avoid the ads or start using Firefox with NoScript and AdBlock Plus.

    So who you gonna see? Wayne, Celine, or Garth?

    If you're using IE, clearing the cache doesn't actually delete anything.

    Everywhere I go I see ads for BMX and Nixon and other various things. But mainly those two. Don't judge me.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    NOTA

    I am going for a course which I suspect will keep me pretty busy. Mrs. RUOkie isn't even going with me. The plan is a good dinner each night, then a movie in the room. I am way too boring.
