Thanks Adblock

Who knew that a frivolous post (though those ads continue to plumb greater depths) could lead to such an improvement in the quality of life?

I now have both my Macs blocked from ads. It's as if a calm breeze has blown in to replace the turbulent distracting gusts.

Adblock on the laptop. I also have an older G4 tower running on an older operating system and web browser. It will take an operating system upgrade, but, because of its guts, that just slows things down. Adblock doesn't work on it, so I tried SafariBlock, which worked, but slowed down the speed at which pages loaded, presumably as it ruminated about what to load and what not too. I threw SafariBlock out and after a little digging found PithHelmet which works great and web pages load much faster sans ads. I only mention this in case others are running older operating systems and browsers and want to block ads too.
