Anybody notice that there are a lot more interstitial ads on the New York Times website?
Coincidence between having Jamaican meat patties for lunch and this article?
I was taking out the garbage last night, and a cat ran inside and scared the heck out of P–. Apparently the cat is the upstairs neighbor’s just out for a little wandering in the hallway. Tabby with a red ribbon and a little bell – cute! The cat didn’t mind me too much, although I chased it out of the bedroom at P–‘s request ’cause she’s allergic. The cat ended up napping on the stairs. Now P– wants her sister’s dogs to have sleepovers here. Yeah, I know all about the patron saint of animals and all – I do generally get along well with animals, but this is getting silly.
OK, I bit YC, and I got the United Nations “But your heart is in the right place, and sometimes also in New York”, and Virginia Wolf: “Your life seems utterly bland and normal to the casual observer, but inside you are churning with a million tensions and worries. “

Yes, those new pop-up like ads on NYTimes.com are sooo annoying. It’s like they’re finding ways to milk irritation out of you in retaliation of taking advantage of their website for free.
Oh, and cool linked article… makes me hungry for a patty.
Those popup ads bypass Firefox. I’m a Firefox convert.
I like that Firefox suppress the pop ups. But, it’s spooky to see the new ads on the Times – they’ve pop-up properties, but they’re not really pop ups since they’re just… there (until you close them). All the more to use Firefox…
The following link at O’Reiley tells you how to get rid of the sneaky popups:
