Thanks for getting it up and running! I am glad to know I wasn't the only one with problems.

No, it's great, leave it just as it is! The annoying left and right column advertisements are the last thing to load. Bad for business - good for readers. (Please, no lectures about advertising dollars subsidizing my reading experience.)

the advertisements on this thing are outrageous. this isn't a print magazine where cramming every inch of space with gratuitous ads is "okay". That's why I use AdBlock and surf ad-free.

Ever been annoyed by all those ads and banners on the internet that often take longer to download than everything else on the page? Install Adblock Plus now and get rid of them. Right-click on a banner and choose "Adblock" from the context menu - the banner won't be downloaded again. Or click Adblock Plus icon in the toolbar to see all elements of the page and block the banners. You can use filters with wildcards or even regular expressions to block complete banner factories.

What about your "tech girls"? Are they on the job?
