still happening :(

on the plus side, pages are loading much faster than they were
there's definitely something going on with your firefox (and it's not just you) that's giving trouble with the adblock detection code. i think Ghostery causes problems with it too so if you have that installed...

I watched Wyrmwood on torrents

Director took a general shit fit

I donated via PayPal
haha..I told the singer(Barry) from Hands Up Who Wants to Die I'd get his record off the torrents if I wanted it and no I didnt wanna buy one.Was backstage at the xmas party.any rent I had on me was earmarked for me shnozz...Sure I hadnt even heard them at that stage anyway.

Motherfucker called me out on it from the mic! hahaha

A couple of times..to rub it in.

Good band..not the sort of thing I would really listen to at home though.Bit mad for me.
I enjoyed them live though.Very ..angular sounding

I thought I was paying him a compliment tbh..you only go on the torrents if yer decent like...which I naturally assumed it was.

well let me know if it does happen - the detection code has been updated and hopefully fixed...

As bad as ads are, all those trackers are starting to gunk up the internet.

I wonder will we reach TV advertising like Idiocracy?

i'd be more worried about the facebook / twitter etc tracking code that's following you around every site that has their like / tweet button codes embedded
