I'm not getting either. Have you confirmed it's not something on your computer?

I've noticed recently that if you browse the forum without signing in, you will see ads within some of the member's posts. Once you sign in, those ads are no longer visible. What you have sounds different, and might be on your end.

That's correct. Ads in the first and last post.

*cough* install adblock *cough*

If you're browsing here you ought to buy the parts here on principle anyway. Usually with $5 of any other site, I'd say it's worth it.

Bottom menu on lower left hand corner of this window, select "Low graphics - Dialup style" and see if that helps.
