Last week, someone complained about the pop ups on my blog. I have pop ups?

I use Firefox as my primary browser and only see pop ups on those really insistant web sites like www.comics.com. (I really like Get Fuzzy and Luanne!). But if you click on more than one link, you get a cool NetFlix pop up. Even when surfing with IE, which I do irregularly, I don't get pop ups. I have the Google toolbar, and have set IE's pop up blocker to "on." So I don't see pop ups.

So I spent an hour or so trying to track down the culprit.

I had to use four different computers, clear their caches and histories, and load the blog. I learned a couple of things. First, these programmers are smart. Once I loaded a popup, I couldn't reload it without clearing the cache. And second, I still don't know who the culprit is. I deleted a couple of the ads and the pop up disappeared.

I hate pop ups. So if you see one when you load this, please let me know.
