Do Bouncing, Floating, Skinny Little Banner Ads Sell Books?

Maybe not.

Whenever I went to Fuse's new home*, I tried to swat the ad like a fly with my cursor. I wondered if it was one of those games they used to include with educational software for kids--you study your spelling words for a while and then you get something to shoot at.

And yet, a lot of people are talking about it. Though, in my case, I don't actually know what "it" is because I never actually got what the ad was about.

*I had to link to Fuse's old home because her new one appears to be out of order tonight. What could that be about? Gee, Fuse, you haven't even been there a week. I hadn't even had time to mention the new place in my blog. You haven't brought the whole thing down, have you?

My vote: that ad is annoying. I tried to close it a couple times, too, and rather than closing it took me to the site being advertised. Don't like that at all.

Yup. Single-handedly crashed the whole kerschmozzle...

I wish.

No, the truth of the matter is that SLJ sometimes reboots at night. It usually takes an hour or so then is back to business. And in the Good News section of things, SLJ has decided that maybe bouncing baby boy banners are not the way to go. That doesn't mean that this one has left just yet, though. *sigh*
