Default New sponsor

I see the site has a new sponsor and it is on the top left side of the page. It is MPAA could this be the motion picture assocation of america?

IDK, I thought it had something to do with April 1st. A joke maybe? Things ALWAYS happen on April 1st around here.

You are probably right, I fell for that one! Well I saw it on the first, but didn't get totally suckered in till the second. Does that count for something?

Something good did happen on the 1st, Lightning released 2.4.3.

Glad somebody noticed my idea of a joke

But to be fair, given the current economic situation, a sponsorship deal from the MPAA will have to be considered!

Interesting April Fool's joke but not nearly as good as the sale of the forum to setarip and Mr Avril someone or other.

Regards

I was hoping admin hadn't lost his sense of humor, it's just more subtle

What's that thing next to the "report" button? Some admin-only feature?

May be we(members of the forum)IMHO should think about donating for the cause. That way we can assure that the site will be here in the future.

If there's any deal going with Sony, could you hold out for a few spindles of YUDENT02 for each member? I only have a few hundred left.

Well, doctorhardware, that's what the ads are for.

I mean, the forum itself only has the one banner ad, but the Digital Digest homepage is crazy with ads - so much so that I usually avoid it. But now that I have Ad Muncher I don't mind - I don't see them anyway

*hides back in his cave as admin complains about losing money from people like me*
