Errr ... I like money? Tbbbbbth! I more was interested in how well the Google ads would target each page that they're on. The ad code is supposed to scan the text of each page and display ads relevant to that page. They seem to work fairly well, I figured I might as well leave 'em on the pages. Happy

Too bad you can't modify the code a little to target Retro gaming in general or perhaps even retro DOS gaming more specifically Shit-Eating Grin

I'm glad Google made the effort, but I doubt if I really need candle-shades... Sarcastic

Oh well, the ads don't bother me, just as long as you don't put in pop-ups.
