    Anyone else have this? It is squishing the whole thread list far to the right. Kind of annoying.

    Yes and it needs to go away. It's a pain in the butt.

    Use mozilla/firefox and install the add on "Ad blocker". Not only will it solve this problem, but you'll never have to see any advertisements again! :D:D

    Hey bro if you use Firefox, theres a plugin called "Ad Block Plus (or pro)" and it will disable all ads on all sites you visit. Its a nice plugin. If not you might try firefox, its a far superior browser, some other plugins...

    Firefox backup extension.
    :Backs up bookmarks, browser history, password, autofills, settings and prefrences, themes, ect.

    Down them all:
    works like many download acclerators out there, connecting to many different ips with the same files to maximize download speed.

    Read it later:
    Like bookmarks, but a quick button or hotkey will put the specific page into a temp folder called "Read it later" lol

    Many more, like icq through your browser, gmail notifications ect.

    Advertising? What is that?
    I can hardly believe that people are still using browsers without ad blockers or flash blockers.

    As I said, try a flash blocker, too. I don't see any ads.

    Of course there's two ways to look at this, you can turn on ad blocker, see no ads, use the site for free - and noone's the wiser.

    From a standpoint that ads pay for development, development makes better sites/tools/communities - it could be said you're shooting yourself in the foot that way. I'm going to take it a step further and say that ad blocker will certainly have you missing out on some of the free giveaways and contests we're going to run soon.

    This isn't anything I want to have a long debate about; I understand both sides to the issue. I do look forward to bringing you all the best tools and website we're able to provide.

    I hope the last few weeks of changes and upgrades are indicative of the progress we're going to be making from here on out.
