Video Adverts

Note: This is just a rant.

I don’t know why but I’m starting to dislike video advertisements showing up on top of content of a page. I also don’t like that they take up bandwidth of your internet connection. Granted business need to make money by promoting their goods and services.

I’ve found that video ads intrusive as of late. Though a number of things have annoyed me to some extent, but that’s another post for another time.


an update of sorts

Just an FYI to those who follow this blog and or who visit my site every so often. I’m in the process of adding Google AdSense to this site to basically try to help with the cost of hosting this site and my pet site. The thing that was preventing me from doing this a couple of years ago – was that I needed a mailbox at my home which I didn’t have ’til last week. Though I did have a mailbox at my home a couple of years back though it got ruined over the winter and I never really got around to get it replaced – ’til this summer.

Though its going to take some time to actually update the whole site with the code.

As for an earlier post about the troubles that I’ve been having with the MySQL Server with my hosting provider as far as I know its been “fixed” but I won’t hold my breath. Seems like that there is some kind of problems with the MySQL server every so often that happens at my hosting company. Don’t know why the server’s “act up” like this but I think its bad for business and frankly they (the hosting provider) should update to the current release build of MySQL and php though after doing some testing before doing a system wide update/upgrade of the server software. But that’s just my 2 cents.

Anyways, getting back on topic, I’m going to see how the ads will do on my site between now and the end of the year. Depending on how this endeavor goes – will move my plans up on moving to a new hosting provider and move to a new domain register – otherwise, hopefully, I’ll do the move of this site later this year.

bye for now…


P.S. This post may be updated at some point but don’t know when or if this post would be updated or not.
