I'm glad you asked. I started getting these ads today and thought it was some kind of virus. Thanks for the info and if anyone knows how to get rid of this, please let us know.

I'm not getting the ads! All those who havent done their taxes yet will get the ads. Ok yea, I see the ads too. The ads arent a virus, its probably done by site coordinator. Maybe she'll give a notice soon.

I'm not sure, but don't you usually have to aprove those ads to help pay for web-space? I wonder if SC had to aprove them to be sure that the cost of this site would be covered every month...donations seem to sort of taper off sometimes and cut it close, at least in the near-year I have been here I've noticed that. I said it before and I'll say it again--we can send cash, almost everyone has three dollars laying around in their house somewhere and that alone would probably make a big difference.

I could of course be way wrong, but I do think that is what ads like these are supposed to do...

"GEICO-Get an insurance quote today"

OMW thanks for starting this thread.

I thought my SpySweeper and Pop-up Blocker package had expired.

Hey Sew:

Guess what; guess what.

I was just over on the advice thread and I found you a man. All you gotta do is guess the rapper and they even give you choices... M&M, P Diddy, or 50 Cents. Only one I've heard of is P Diddy coz he's mentioned on a country song. 🙂

Anyway, if you want a half dressed guy; wearin nothin but his headband but cannot see below the waist. Whew! He can even dance somewhat. Tried to describe it but couldn't come up w/ anything rated less than an X.

Go see & Getcha some.

I want a mate and a laptop!!! All I got was a systems upgrade 🙁

Now, if I could just get an upgrade to what #1 mate has, all my worries would be over....

Hey Everybody.

I probably should have given warning about using advertisements?!

🙂

I had a long & hard struggle with thinking about using advertisement as a money generator. Yes, the site is funded, but that's it... JUST, barely, funded.

I'd like to make "improvements" and new programming in the future, and that requires money. Who's going to pay for that? If we're barely funded just for "space", then who will pay for future opportunities for new discussion forum software, maybe online workshops with real counselors? Stuff like that?

History: out of pocket, I spent $15,000+ dollars that I earned just like all of you. At my job. And I'd say, that the $15,000 that I "lost" was the really easy part. The hard part, was creating this site (started to create it in Oct 1997), hosting it, putting together my own hosting server, meeting with the phone company and ISP's... and then starting a business to build & host other people's websites just to keep this one funded. Words absolutely, cannot express, how much work was put into the creation & ongoing life of this site.

And then, I worked every evening for 4 years, building other people's websites, just to fund the $640/month that this one cost. That was T-1 line costs + the phone company fees. Yep. So while I really only spent/"lost" $15,000, I actually earned another enormous amount of hard worked money to fund the site thereafter. Pretty unbelievable as I look back on it. I was definitely devoted.

I hope the ads generate some money. It's likely they will generate very very little, but without giving things like this a try, then I again, will need to give my own blood to make future service & improvements.

Thanks for listening.

Love to all, Site Coordinator

I've been wondering for a couple of months now--are there any grants or anything anyone knows of that could help SC, or a way for us to do some annonymous fundraising for AAC?

Maybe we can get #1 match to do a carwash?

Seriously though, we should be trying to help out here some...some of us are professionals, many of us have smarts, and some of us have the time and energy to look into this further...just a thought.
