    Hey ARLnow, what’s up with your ads? They are replaced with mini error windows with the “diagnose connection problems” thing. Been going on intermittently for about a week. Running IE8 on a boring Dell laptop so doubt its my system…ads are money, don’t want you to lose out since this site is a great resource.

      At first I thought “what is he talking about?”… then it occurred to me I don’t see any ads at all, yet not mini error windows – I do recall seeing ads in the past, I hope the market didn’t dry up.

      • CourthouseChris

        IE 7, no ads, no errors

      • CourthouseChris

        I see them on my Android phone however

    • JamesE

      Running firefox 10 I have yet to see this

    • AllenB

      I see all of the ads on IE.

    • Josh S

      IE8 Dell Desktop. No problems. Strongly suspect it is your network.

      • CW

        Yeah, weird, maybe they redid something on the back end recently. Only a recent issue. But not surprising.

      • CourthouseChris

        Yeah I think mine is the network… as best I recall I don’t think I’ve ever seen the ads here at work – only at home.

  • Chrome

    No issue in Chrome.

  • nunya

    no issues with ff10, ie8 or latest c

  • Good Grief

    Seriously, couldn’t find anything more artistic than an shopping cart?

    • Seriously…

      Couldn’t find anything else to complain about this morning? Haha… It’s just a photo, lighten up GG

      • Good Grief

        Good point if nothing else, I’m glad I gave you something to complain about! Happy Thursday!

  • courthound

    I hope there’s a special place in hell for people who take shopping carts and leave them blocks (sometimes miles) from the store.

    • JamesE

      Harris Teeter now has the wheel locks that engage if they go outside the store perimeter. I haven’t seen if they actually work.

    • awh hells bells

      I don’t think Dante would accomadate your plight but perhaps you could pen Inferno 2.0.

    • ArlRes

      Funny thing is, at the Costco in pentagon city, the employees actually encouraged me to push the cart all the way home. They even have a full time crew that drives around gathering the carts from around town. Explains why every apartment building there has at least a few dozen Costco carts in their garages and on the sidewalks.
