A winner is me!

And continuing with the search request theme… on the night of Sunday, August 10, shortly before 7:30 PM EST, someone did indeed stumble across Zone38 by searching for Bonzi game show.

I told you it was going to happen eventually. 😉

Still more Google abuse

Yet another insane search request found in my server logs: i want to dowload super mario word and super mario free dowload game.

Now, admittedly, I’ve gotten searches for “mario word dowload” before, but this one’s just surreal. Why add “I want to”? What’s with the doubled “dowload”; is searching for it only once not enough? The mind boggles…

Also from the logs: “can you hear me now” is annoying! All I can say is that I heartily agree…

Attack of the annoying Adobe ads

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 4:07 pm

Since a quick Google search turns up only two sites mentioning this option, I figured I ought to spread the word about it on my blog, because I know I’m not the only person who finds this annoying…

For those who haven’t downloaded it yet, Adobe’s Acrobat…err…Adobe Reader 6.0 has some useful new features, but one of those features is a small advertisement which needlessly takes up space on the right-hand side of the toolbar (even when viewing PDFs within the browser!).

It turns out, however, that this ad can be turned off. The solution, however, is completely non-intuitive: in the Preferences window, under Startup, un-check the “Show Messages and automatically update” box.
