cleaning out some ads... (poll!)

Well… some ads simply don’t work and/or I don’t have the traffic to make money on them and/or I’m not motivated enough to be busy with spammer-stuff like ad-optimization and such. To be honest, I hate it, so I cleaned out some ads. With clickrates around 1 in every 1000 I say, I’m not going to annoy 999 people to make $0.01 on nr.1000 … You may call me stoopid, but I like it better this way.

So, for now that means I’m back with Google-ads and Google-ads alone… Of course, it’s still my goal to get this thing to break even, but if that means I have to turn this thing into a christmastree, I’d rather be flipping burgers for 2 hours to make up for the lost profit… :D

So, the weekend-poll is pretty obvious this time, but never the less…

how do you feel about ads being removed?
definately the way to go!
78% / 64 votes
are you stoopid or what?
22% / 18 votes
Total Votes: 82

and the results of the previous poll:

which way should this site go, your opinion:
Sure, blog whatever you guys want and post a project every now and then, that's just fine
I'd only like to see geeky projects, you can leave the rest, never mind a daily update
Let Nijne do the blogging and Mark, you just stick to your soldergun...
Mark, never mind and in all due respect... WE WANT NIJNE!
none of the above (I expect a comment if you choose this! ;-))
Total Votes: 194

So… thanks go out to everybody who voted (well, almost everybody, except the ones who want me out of here… *^_^* )

(that is a joke of course…)
