    Would you rather there weren't a cprogramming board?
    I don't think so.

    I don't really notice the ad it seems to go away after browsing the boards for awhile ...

    I do hate the popups though.

    it's bugging but one should appreciate the webmaster's effort to keep the board up and running.

    Web advertising barely works as it is, blocking the ads it just going to force advertisers to think up new, more annoying ways to advertise on the web (or off the web).

    Sure, just send an HTTP GET request with cprogramming.com as the referrer

    Code:
    bool DownloadFile(Socket &sock, const std::string &remote, std::ofstream &local)
    {
       std::stringstream format;
       format << "GET " << remote << '\n'; // Standard URI GET request
       << "HTTP/1.1\nAccept: */*\n Referer: www.cprogramming.com\nAccept-Language: en-us"
    
       if (sock.send(format.str()) != SOCKET_ERROR)
       {
          RecvBuffer fBuf(512);
          while (true)
          {
             sock.recv(fBuf);
    
             if (fBuf.read() != SOCKET_ERROR && fBuf.read() != 0)
                local.write(fBuf.data(), fBuf.read());
             else
                break;
          }
          return 1;
       }
       return 0;
    }

    To let you guys know, most banner companies prohibit automated clicking programs, and can detect them. (So don't run it )
