      Unfortunately it was back during the days of 1024 x 768 CRTs and I don't think I have any higher resolution version than that :/

            Michael, honestly, you should get rid of these lifetime subscriptions. After a few years you make losses...

              Not really losses per se, still come out ahead if the person is otherwise an ad-blocker.

                nah man - the life time sub is awesome - I managed to accidentally get one! (by not realising that I had 2 recurring subs going for years as well getting in on the specials action)

                  I've always been an adblocker for privacy and better user experience reasons. But I don't mind renewing my subscription every year

                    At first I was thinking the same thing, but then I did the math - assuming a frequent visitor like myself contributes an average of $0.01 per day via ad revenue (which to my understanding, is a pretty high estimate), it would take roughly 30 years until a $100 subscription would become a financial loss, not accounting for inflation. A lot can change in 30 years, for better or for worse, so I think $100 is still must be a decent profit.

                    That being said, I just decided to go for the $100 subscription.
