How about we trade your poor PC performance ad for my Big Block of Chinese Characters ad? I'll throw in a powdered donut!

If your seeing this at the top of the page, it's probably an add from google. Those are served based on your location and recent browsing history and we don't have a lot of control over them. You might try doing a few searches for something of interest to you (like trailer hitches or chocolate) and see if the ads change...

If the Welcome to Fiberglass RV is at the top of your page, you are not logged in as a member. Log in and the add goes away.

First political attack ad I've seen appeared today among Google's commercial offerings on the index page. A virus which suggests that the proprietors are not bound by the same constraints as the proles?

Check this months Consumers Reports. Some companies have claimed computers had viruses that they didn't have and charged an arm and a leg to disinfect the computer that had nothing wrong with it. B Ware of the your computer has problems adds.

I love using the Default skin... I never see any ads and the blue is much, much easier on my old eyes.

You actually read those things? Don't tell me you watch commercials too.

Oops, bad omen here, I just looked up and saw an ad for Family Feud. Hope we don't start one here over this.

Talking Phone not internet

I just heard of something someone did with their phone. I wonder if the internet could do it too.
What he did is he has two phone lines, one for family and close friends and one for business and other strangers. The second is a special type that charges the caller and pays a percentage to the callee. I understand he made $500 already. $$$$$

If I charged people to call me on business, I think I would quickly lose them as customers. Not sure I see the purpose of that. I haven't heard of it either.

The advertisers on the Google ads do pay down to the site owners indirectly, at least a small fee anyway.
