I thought it was jut me. I get tired of complaining about adds taking over the site, so I just stay away. Mine takes up the screen and tells me I’m the lucky iphone user.

It does it fast. Open tab and come here. Click on today’s post. Click a thread, and I’m the lucky iPhone user. Close tab and try again tomorrow.

Throw the iPhones into the drink, buy a laptop and then check the forum in off hours. You will be amazed how well your life is working out now that you disconnected from that little slave master phone.


Winner winner chicken diner.

Yes it had become nearly unusable, screen kept jumping which would make me click on wrong line, adblock helped a lot

And some of the other issues have not occurred recently, thank you admin

Movies nowadays are pretty much suck. I like watching how to rebuild automatic transmissions, sail boats, Jamie O'brian , and the Old Seadog.

If I'm on the PC, I have add blocker. Really don't want to install it on my phone.


As for commercial TV/cable, I have a raspberry PI and stream movies from Exodus using the Kodi media player. Very rare I watch regular TV. I should just get rid of FIOS and the phone and just pay for internet.


I forget the price but it was about $50.00 for the Raspberry PI board, the case, XD card (hard drive) and power supply. You can get whatever case you want. It's about the size of a deck of cards. You also need a wireless keyboard. For the tin foil hat I pay a few bucks a month for IP Vanish.

Hello there,

So sorry about this!
If you can grab us the link to that ad, we'll get it reported.

Again, sorry for the inconvenience,

Ed

I keep getting the "Your Iphone is compromised, click here". The PC version is working fine with the ad blocker. I don't mind the ads, just the fact that they bog the site down. On the phone, it's just about useless unfortunately.

Very similar to my Roku, but the Roku doesn't need any accessories.

If I want to check ET on the phone I go through the browser.

I kinda thought the Roku was the same. The only difference is the Roku is already put together?

I don’t know much about those. Like the fire stick, aren’t they services that you pay monthly for?

I just pay $3.25 a month for IP Vanish. Just to avoid any legality on whether streaming is legal off of some servers. Some won’t connect without. Some like YouTube and Kahn academy have there own open servers/content so it doesn’t mater.

If you want to watch stuff that’s not even in theaters yet, better put on the tin foil hat. I just watch older stuff.
