    I get the text ads with chrome. I wouldn't mind so much if the ads were actually relevant, but no matter what the text is all you seem to get is blackberry ads :confused:

    No, no, it's there in Firefox too... if you're good and disable AdBlock Plus for Bit-Tech. Which I do, as I like to support the places I find useful or fun.

    Forgive the JPEG artefacts.

    More Blackberry ads. Neat. Apparently Blackberries are useful for "operating systems" and "internal networks"...

    ...

    Anyway, the issue is a nasty one, good that HP fixed it. :)

    This is why people should run "Follow me" solutions if they print important/secret stuff.




    I run firefox, and haven't even installed Adblock yet. I still don't get them.

    I think it's because we're on non UK ISPs. Great for me since I'll just VPN to work when reading Bit Articles :)

    Glad all Xerox machines I've worked on developing in the last 3 years have image overwrite, so as soon as the job is printed it gets overwritten on the hard disc.

    I believe we have a Stage Three transition on our hands, here, folks.

    Stage 1 - someone buys some webspace and mounts a forum on it. His friends join.
    Stage 2 - site becomes successful enough to employ people
    Stage 3 - site is purchased by a large media conglomerate, and users find sport in writing utilities to compare linguistic distribution of site's articles to that of current Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft press releases.

    Not to worry, though - it's a rolling process, and by the time bit-tech has finished becoming a waste of space, there'll be someone else around doing the job they used to do so well, and who aren't afraid to have a link to the LED resistor calculator on the front page.

    Now I see the auto-text. Yeah, it's very unprofessional. Reminds me now of Tom's HW....yuck

    Better yet, if you hover over the under-underline, or more to the point if you happen to abandon the mouse cursor in that position, the ads flash at you madly, appearing and disappearing repeatedly. Top quality!

    As tank_rider wrote - good printer should have some tool to clean up the disks after printing
