It’s AdRoulette! [The Beta Files]

Forever in Beta.

So, a hilarious interlude.

Today marks our brand new ads. They are prettily situated at the top and sides of the site, and will soon be in the bottom of each post. Please enable ads, I would love to stop having Dreamhost stop threatening to shut down the site because we’re late on our hosting. There will be no take your screen hostage ads – everything is programmed to be banners or sidebar.  We are with the RawStory ad network, and the ads as nice looking as they promised. However, there is one catch – the ads are still as random as the ones in your Gmail inbox.

So, while we were testing them, we spotted:

  • Kiva Microloans
  • Some water charity
  • BP Oil Spill Response
  • Albertson’s Grocery Store
  • Interracial Dating web site
  • Russian Love Match
  • US Army “Wake Up” Call
  • Square Credit Card Swiper Thingy
  • Forex Trading
  • Progressive Change Campaign Committee
  • Dove Body Wash
  • Downy Fabric Softener
We have no idea what ads you are seeing, so let us know!
