I was unable to connect to that site, but check this one out:


It's a little hard to navigate; check the left hand column.
History, tricks, tips, etc...
A good website, even if not layed out very well.

[Note: It's been a long time since I've been there, and in reviewing this, I noticed that there are lots of ads, and multiple pop-unders for each page visited... Yuck!]

I highly recommend Popup Ad Filter from:


I've tried all the filters AND actually registered this one, it works so good (Windows 98) !

I use AdZapper with the Squid HTTP Proxy Server on the OpenBSD box at the house and I really like it. Doesn't kill all popups, but when they do popup, I have no idea what they are selling as all graphics have been replaced with "This Ad Zapped".

Actually... That makes me laugh!

All the machines in the house have the ad filtering automagically regardless of OS.

Four Stars. Joe Bob says "Check it out!"
