I guess this happens on the AdWeb when your tracking protection works relatively well, but advertisers still want to place a "relevant" ad.

"Save now - secure shell" at amazon... yeah... no. I mean, I was googling some SSH option, but... no.

I've been reminded that I haven't posted in a while. Sadly, the sunflowers have all been eaten by snails. Meanwhile, the cucumbers all died except for one.

Basil, chives and parsley are thriving, as are the lettuces. Radishes have long been eaten.

Guess what? I'm sitting in the car to escape the rain, and wanted to show off my (relatively) new t-shirt. Be the rust upon their gears.
