    And shut up about adblock. I like generating income for the sites I visit.

    I just noticed them too. (Tbh I thought it was only me and some setting had freaked out in my browser.)

    Actually though I don't mind them. If ads help support TPU and give money to the site, I'm all for it. :)

    If this is not just a test and the Owners want some honest feedback: That is a horrible place to have ads in. It breaks the layout.

    Exactly, I wouldn't mind it if it was at the bottom, or the sides but there is just annoying.

    I just reset my password a while ago because it's not letting me in. Is that okay?

    I didnt even notice the ads due to adblock xD and I've just reset my password anyway. Odd they would hack this place, merely a leviathan bundle of tech information!

    Hacked so they could inject ads? I guess a few thousands vies might generate you like 2.05, enough for a small coffee.

    I like the new password it auto generated for me, so I guess that's a plus.

    I'm a tad confused.

    One of the ads I was seeing was that of a well-known local computer store here. It's actually an international franchise.

    Does this mean that this computer store is paying a hacker to promote his business on the internet?
