What Next?

Now that Britney Spears has had her baby (you have seen the first photo over at TopFive, right?), which celeb mom-to-be will grace every cover of People Magazine? I mean, they have to have somebody, right?

Oh, by the way, if any of you experience a pop-up ad on my site (i.e. you load my site and get a pop-up or pop-under) and you’re pretty sure it’s not something from the site you just left, could you drop me an email and tell me who the ad is for, and then make a note of what the ads are over in the right nav bar? I fear that these are somehow related to the stuff coming here from Google and I’m trying to track when it happens. Unfortunately, it’s happened to me at least 4 times this week at work, and 3 of those times it’s triggered that “YOU ARE A BAD PERSON!” warning when you try to go to a site the company has blocked. I’ll be darned if I’m going to get in trouble for something that I didn’t ask for or want. And when I click, I’m leaving the company intranet to go to my site, so it’s not coming from the site I’m leaving.

I have an email in to their support group, but I want to know if it’s happening to anyone else out there. Just use the Jody at this domain name one, and put “pop-up” in the subject line. Thanks for your help.
