Internet & Networking We're still in the slow news period, so let's talk about something we discussed before: blocking advertisements on websites. Up until, well, today, I didn't block ads - not because of some ethical objection or whatever, but simply because I couldn't be bothered to setup AdBlock. Today, after taking a closer look at some of the websites I frequent, I decided to take the plunge and install AdBlock on all my machines. The following set of screenshots should pretty much explain why.

I always thought the expression was to toot one's own horn, as in to play one's own theme, sing one's own praises. Touting one's own horn does make much more sense if you are a horn maker who is proud of his work :-)
