Protect yourself and clean up web pages!

Ads!!! They're everywhere. Some of them aren't even that nice.

Here's a way to get rid of ads... it's not everything, but it helps.

http://pgl.yoyo.org/adservers/

Basically, it gives you a list of ad servers. You copy and paste the list into your hosts file, and whenever a page tells you to look at an ad from one of those servers, your browser looks for it on your own hard drive. But since it's not there, nothing comes up where the ad would be.

It's a little tricky, but if you have a geek handy, ask 'em to do it.

(Note: I've found a few ads that still come up. I look at the source, and add their server to the list, and viola, it's gone.)
