It's The End Of The Month, New Ad Testing
Written by Michael Larabel in Phoronix on 29 April 2010 at 02:30 PM EDT. 22 Comments
For those of you not Phoronix Premium subscribers, between now and the first of May, when you visit a new article or news posting you may be greeted by a landing/welcome overlay screen with an advertisement courtesy of SAP. While this may not be the most ideal for browsing, this ad will only ever appear once per IP address and can be easily closed using the link that says "Close Window", or you can also visit the advertiser. It's that simple and will not infer with any other browsing experience.

This ad is used to help support our operations of constantly delivering new Linux and computer hardware content at Phoronix along with the development of the Phoronix Test Suite. Again, such welcome advertisements will only be displayed once per IP address and after midnight tomorrow the ad will no longer be up.

Of course, you can also help us by becoming a Phoronix Premium subscriber where you are never exposed to ads and you can also support us in other ways. Thanks for your understanding.
