    Are these advertisements localized to our area? What I mean is, if I'm in Pakistan am I getting Pakistan ads, if im in New York, New York ads, etc. What kinds of ads are you guys getting? I'm getting a Telus ad.

    I haven't noticed any localized ads (I just got expedia and inktomi, too)... I seem to remember nv saying he got ads in German when the new boards went up last summer, though.

    The Telus ad is an Alberta ad. That's my home province.

    Maybe there are some, then... I don't recall ever seeing a Telus ad... I don't think I've ever seen any local to me, though.

    yes, and the popups help pay for the site, Dean.

    Opera kills them for me, but I keep that option off to help the site

    The reason I ask is because popups used to unacceptable here but maybe they are now financially required like ober said. I am just getting the one so it's not a big deal anyways.
