Excuse me for asking, as I know the adverts on the site contribute to the lxf profits, but why are at least half of the adverts I have noticed in the banner at the top and in the bar down the left for microsoft products (i.e. m$ sql and m$ partnering). has any one else noticed this?

It seems like everyone but 1sf (troll) is having a go at Mike these days Laughing

I like the idea of Microsoft funding a site that helps people get rid of Windows Very Happy

I prefer the idea of Microsoft funding Mike's trip's to Hooters.
