Get rid of the ads? Egads. What do you think enables the owner of this site to live the good life in the Caribbean and Utah? Sure ain't goodwill and donations.

Of course, AdBlock is free. And works equally well on other sites.

More screen resolution. The ads only encroach if you don't have enough horizontal pixels. This new software assumes we have more advanced hardware.

I just downloaded adblocker. It works really well. The pages come up really clean and friendly without clutter. Thanks for the tip!
