can I check -- what resolution, browser, device etc are you viewing the background ad on?
Secondly ... pop up ads? What pop-up ads?? I haven't set anything like that. Again, what platform are you viewing this on?
In terms of the sexy Thai women, that would be a Google Adsense ad -- it is automatically tailored towards the reader, so I have little control over it. However, I'll see whether I can block certain categories in Adsense that might be offensive at work.
Thanks for the feedback!
