it does actually cost some money to host this site - jeremy's not even breaking even with the banners... if you really want to get rid of them, i suggest you visit the donations section of the site.

Sure, I'll make a deal with you. You buy a new machine and take care of bandwidth and pay for all the other costs of the site. In return I will happily take down all the banner ads.

when i stop being a student (or rather stop having the finances of a student) i'll start making decent contributions i promise. maybe i could bribe you to move my bluecadet posts over..? ;-)

Ok, i don't have money to throw around at the moment,
and the ads don't advertise casinos and stuff.
So i can live with it.
