Just a quick administrative update today. Some of you might have noticed that the site has been serving popup ads for a while now. This was never my intent. Years ago when the site opened, I made use of a web counter service called Nedstat. A couple years ago they were bought and became Motigo Webstats. For a period of time I noticed that when viewing the homepage in Opera or Internet Explorer, a popup would load. I didn't notice it earlier because I use Firefox with NoScript as my default browser, but after some investigation it became clear that it was the doing of the Motigo Webstats icon I placed on the homepage for stat tracking. Because of this I have stopped using them and the popups should go away. You'll notice that there are no banners or ads on the site and I'd like to keep it that way for as long as possible. Popups, particularly in this day and age, are simply unacceptable and for that I'm sorry.
In the spirit of disclosure, I am still using Google Analytics on the site but I'm currently evaluating continuing even that. Statistics are a useful tool and Google doesn't inject ads into the site so it's likely they'll stay.
