Needs more cowbell!

    Based on the dragon tattoo books, I suspect that in Sweden, I'd see lots of ads for coffee and pickles.

     

    And sandwiches.

    I shoot pretty things! ~

      ABP (or something else you have running) is blocking the ads. 

       

      Yes, and the RA message is probably something that Eric has in the background on the panel, so if you block the ad you see that message otherwise the ad overlays the message.

        Okay, thanks everyone, but I still can't figure out what it is that are blocking the ads. It is neither AdBlock+ nor Flashblock, because I have tried disabling them both.

          And sandwiches.

           What about Ikea??  not to mention PDAs (remember those) and computer spying stuff.

            I already get those ads.  And sandwich ads (Subway).

             

            Pickle ads would be weird.

             

              Yup, what everyone else said &

               

               

              there's a possibly those ads could be beer & bacon related.  

               

              Mmmm... Beery-bacon

                Actually, I am getting LOCAL ads now.

                 

                Wonder how that works....

                xor


                  By your IP address (or at least the IP address that seems to be associated with you, as assigned by whatever network/ISP you are currently connected to).

                   

                  When I'm traveling, some websites, including google's search results, know basically where I am.  This can be handy. Or creepy.  Or both.

                   

                  It also provides a somewhat handy way to test whether one's IP address is being obfuscated when one desires to do that.  Not that anybody would.

                    yeah.

                     

                    Come to think of it, when I was down in Mexico last week (Playa del Carmen...an awesome place), I was getting ads in Spanish. 

                     

                    That's how good I am at ignoring them...barely noticed.

                     

                    It WAS annoying, though, having to constantly tell Google to translate for me.  i could NOT get Google to give me English results automatically.  No matter how hard I tried..  There was probably some setting....
