True. I cut Cable TV because a) the programming was rank and; b) the ad time has grown to nearly 16 - 18 minutes per hour* of "show". So, yesterday I turned the radio on and went off NPR (US public radio), every station bar none was playing an ad.
I use Firefox with AdBlock Plus, NoScript, BetterPrivacy, et. al.
I don't mind ads I just hate being carpet bombed.

Lol, the CSRs on the phones were not engineers! They were $10/hr phone-support-with-script monkeys. You would not believe some of the crap we would find stuffed around, behind, under and in the computers. They would pry back the fascia that covered the floppy and CD drive bays (see my original post, we ordered the machines without these drives), and fill them with candy bar wrappers, fast food napkins and whatever else was too difficult for them to place in a wastebasket.

You will become a billionaire if you can patent that!
Note that boss asked me to incorporate web dev into my job - the raise was due more to added responsibilities. LOL, until that point boss was unaware that my web development abilities had become viable and marketable.
