Comment learn to ignore ads (Score 1) 219

i don't know if i'm a medical phenomenon, but i've always been extremely good at ignoring adds. a couple of months ago, i ended up in a group discussing a mildly controversial billboard, and i was the only one that hasn't seen it. on my way home, i've noticed that same billboard was *virtually* ~5 meters away from my flat, so i must have passed by it dozens of times on way to my buss stop. you've already learned how to ignore lots of stuff (like your own smell or traffic noise), so learn how to ignore adds as well.

i know, but i suppose none of the 3rd party services will be shut overnight, so i'll have time back my stuff up. the thing is, i don't like to carry stuff that don't fit in my pocket (for me, netbook is a couch accessory), and i pretty much always have an access to a pc. actually, i work more on other ppls computers than on mine... and i'm always forgetting to transfer everything i need to my phone + bluetooth is too slow for large presentations (especially when the other person has old phone with 1.x version).

Montana City Requires Workers' Internet Accounts 836

A portion of the application reads, "Please list any and all, current personal or business websites, web pages or memberships on any Internet-based chat rooms, social clubs or forums, to include, but not limited to: Facebook, Google, Yahoo, YouTube.com, MySpace, etc.' The article goes on to mention, 'There are then three lines where applicants can list the Web sites, their user names and log-in information and their passwords.'"
