Did you see in the Business news that iVillage is about to be purchased by NBC? I wonder what changes that will bring to use here at Gardenweb if any. I read about it in the business section of the New York Times. I don't know if the link will work but I'll try to include it.

Here is a link that might be useful: iVillage purchase by NBC

Very interesting . Lets hope that we don't get flooded with a rash of ads.

Flooded??? You mean it can get worse?? Lately anytime I open a post, I get a video pop up. Whether it be the exploding pants (the least annoying of all), The crystal light, the honda one, and the South Beach Diet. Now it plays without even being seen, so I cant even click the X to make it stop. No I dont want any cheese with my whine. =)

I use Firefox and only see the occasional floating triangle.

Firefox has a pop-up blocker that will make your entire internet experience go much smoother.
