Status on self-improvement: March 2008. What you can learn from this.
Short intro: I’ve been in a winter school at Predeal, Romania for one week (February 20 to February 26, 2008). There was no Internet connection, I never watch TV, and everything could be considered atypical (atypical relations in a good way, non typical housing, food, interactions) so there was a lot of time just for personal analysis and my memory worked better in those conditions (atypical situations, remember?). I’ll present in here some of the things that I monitor on myself, and present them as a little status. At the bottom of the post there are conclusions. I hope you’ll find this blog post interesting.

How to remove blog ads?
2 Comments Published February 28th, 2008 in IT skills, Permanent post, Written for the whole world
This blog thrives on ads. It also thrives on getting people more information and practical uses of it. I see no conflict between the two, so this blog post is specifically on removing blog ads generally and for this blog specifically.
Why should you block the ads? The answer is simple: they distract you from viewing the interesting content, and even if they are contextual ads (so they are related to the content), most of them are not what you would look for in a page. You might want to keep the ads just to see how other people would promote a web site in two lines. I personally remove ads from FireFox, and keep them in Opera.
Now that you know why should you remove ads, read on to see how to remove them. Continue reading ‘How to remove blog ads?’
