An apology to those who have been offended by the appearance of ads here in the past week.  I find that simple ad blocking is no longer a stand-alone option, and that WordPress insists upon a $99/year premium account to achieve the same goal.  That’s an increase of 3.3 times to the cost of the joy of not stuffing ads in the face of my visitors– the only other benefit to me is 13G of media storage rather than 3G, and since I’m currently using a whopping four percent of that free storage, it’s a dubious benefit indeed.  It’s also not a quantity of money I can hand over without a qualm– it’s about the distance into overdraft I got before each payday, as our household is one of those in which (food)+(utilities)+(mortgage)=(all incoming cash), less a madcap subscription to Netflix to keep us from going completely mad for want of entertainment.

Basically, I can’t afford to not let WordPress annoy you with ads any more.  Sorry, everyone.  We are all firmly in the grip of the Great Grimpen Mire of capitalism.
