You might want to check the one with the bike at the bottom of the site. The one on the top seems to work fine but if you click the one on the bottom you get this:

Still broken for me. Click into the fake box where it says "enter your URL" as opposed to the writing where it says "Web hosting by UKFast".

Make sure its the bottom image, should be absolute bottom right.

Same thing, when I click on the Flash add I end up at http://www.linuxformat.com/forums/undefined which shows you are using Ubuntu 8.04 LTS for your web server :wink:

No, definitely 8.04 LTS - probably 8.04.4 actually :wink: but I don't recommend any probing to confirm this.

It looks like it opens a page which redirects to http://www.linuxformat.com/forums/undefined

I've let UKFast know -- I'm sure they'll make a new banner pronto. Glad you're all clicking on it :-)

I haven't blocked ads from sponsors who advertise in the magazine, they help keep websites free and they generally don't have malware as part of their ads. Personal preferences :wink:

I block them at work because our bandwidth is so low.
Plus I never buy anything from them anyway, so what's the point of using my bandwidth to download their adverts?
I feel the same about popup ads - they just annoy me and I have never, ever bought anything from one, much the same as spam.
