My System Specs


I turned off my ad-blocker for HWC and the other sites I visit 1-2 times a week. Does not make it right, but I have been burned often by sites that bombard me with ads to the point that the enjoyment from the 'content' I want to see is greatly diminished.

I do support the notion of blocking some content for people who use ad-blockers. You just have to have some message displayed to these users why the content is not appearing as it happens. I would also support a 'subscription' linked to my login that would allow me to see this site ad-free.

I also like to think that HWC makes some money from the 2-3 t-shirts, 2-3 hats, 2 mugs, mouse pad etc. that I purchase from the store.
