Taco & Adblock for Firefox

Did you know early-retirement.org puts 15 cookies on your computer and they can tell where you are by your ip address? Neither did I - they are now deleted after each session.
Taco for Firefox helps to block all the tracking cookies and Adblock helps with pop ups and advertising. When I go to a site I never see the add. I'm guessing this help the download speed.

So I am sitting in Sweetish Hill, eating a slice of carrot cake and reading this thread, and I glance up at the banner to see...

Now I actually think it is kind of cool that they can target ads by location, but this almost made me look over my shoulder.

Using my cookie reading utilities and the ER-org backdoor access mode, I see that you have been visiting way too many porn sites.
