What happened to your baby? What do you have? I just got a new MacBook two months ago (+student video ipod/printer deal ) and I have found the Apple love. What are you using? I know Safari loads quick but I just don't like it. I just downloaded Camino, so we'll see how it goes.

My poor baby has already been injured in it's short life. I cracked the freaking screen! It's better now, but those first few days without were rough!

Oh, and like I said I'm on Camino and I don't see any add's at all.

I have a powerbook.. the last one just before the macbook pro came out.. so its basically a macbook pro without the intel processor

It got dropped :X (Not by me!) It had a dent on the left that messed up the PC slot Its back in town - but UPS screwed up the delivery, so I wont get it until Monday night. (BOO UPS) I was really excited on Friday when it said out for delivery, but then it updated and said it was rescheduled.

I use firefox for OS X.. Sooooo much better than safari.

I totally miss the two finger scrolling thing.. the wide screen.. oh and everything else. LOL

Re: Another offensive ad from Google

Um, I don't understand, wasn't the TMI area done away with because it didn't fit the "family friendly" theme of this site? I saw a seriously nasty add on the WELCOME page - you know, the page newbies would see when they come to register. What does that say about the site? At least the TMI area could be opted into and if you didn't want to be exposed to the stuff in there, you didn't have to be. The ads are NOT optional for everybody, as is quite obvious by responses in the thread.

What really makes me sad is that this site is a wonderful tool for promoting cloth diapering, yet I wonder how many people are turned off by the adds on the very first page they see, and never become members. I wonder if those people might have decided not to CD or given up on it b/c they couldn't get the help with it they could have here, if not for the ads.

No they just go to other cloth diapering sites that are more family friendly. There were quite a few people join the other board saying they would rather be there then here at DS because the nasty ads that show up here!

I just got one that is for an Angelina Jolie Sex Scene on Zango, right next to an infant clothing add. Nice. On this thread none the less.

How come none of the administration are responding to this thread? This is unacceptable You shouldn't need a filter to view this website safely.

I see nothing...

thankfully.

Sucks for the WAHMs though... for shame. I wouldn't like seeing someone else's booty while I'm searching for Cloth diapers to buy...
