However, because I am so freakin sick of sifting through spam comments and paying godaddy for the freakin privelege of doing it, I set up Google Ads to try to offset the cost of web hosting. Google is spooky, but they give me a tiny cut of the profits, so screw it.
Google keeps track of every Google search made from YOUR computer, even in "private browsing mode" so watch it. Then every time YOUR computer looks at a "google ad" (and Google ads are absolutely everywhere), G picks an ad that you might be interested in. G uses it's power to give you ads that maybe you are interested in. Kind of scary powerful, but not sinister. Your grocery club card does the same thing, you sheep. Say baa!
Here is how it works: Google, and maybe Google's ad partners, place and read cookies on YOUR browser when you view Google ads. They also put "web beacons" in their ads to remember the computers that view an ad. So Google can still remember your computer the next time you see a Google ad, and a web beacon does not have to put anything on your computer.
So, you can choose to reject cookies in your browser options. For example, in Firefox, you can go to Tools -> Options -> Privacy, and uncheck the "accept third party cookies" box. And you can get Adblock to stop the ads and therefore stop web beacons. If you adblock, Google gives me a tiny cut of zero. So. Do it anyway if the ads bother you. But then donate to charity at the link below.
But no minivans!
Donate to CharityIf this site has helped you, or even if it hasn't, please help care for abused and neglected children by making a donation to The Valley of the Moon Children's Home. That's right, abused and neglected children. Visit their website and try not to cry, you cold hearted bastard. Their site talks about how they achieved their goals and built a new home, but that was years ago. They still need cash to take care of all the kids there. Breaks my heart and pisses me off.
Think: Cars are expensive, powerful, and heavy. Before I start work, I face the possibility that I will destroy my vehicle, my own life, and innocent pedestrians' lives. If anyone messes with a 4000 lb machine capable of 100 mph, these are real possibilities. If I get in over my head, I call a professional mechanic.
