I like using the linux -distro windows xp password changing floppy on all those pesky sales people who think they are clever by throwing on a password before they get fired or quit. Takes about two seconds to completely remove and/or change their passwords.
Hope the FLoppy doesn't die on me, because i don't have the name of the program anymore
I don't object to the ads either, and if they help pay for these forums I don't really want to subvert them. But if there's a way they can be blocked without depriving THG of their revenue I'd like to know. Constructive criticism like Baron's can help solve the problem. I only use Adblock for one particular blog because the ads are excessive and very distracting, but even then I don't feel comfortable doing it.
