The talking smilies, mozzy and clown ad's must all die very horrible deaths. let me tell you a story why....
As my son got to 1 year old and was being the usual little walking monster that kids are at that age we had to move the PC's upstairs for fear of him
sending himself up in a blue flash. I work from home as a freelance 3d artist and also release video tutorials on the side.
After working hard on a video tutorial in the afternoon I went away for meals etc before sitting down at night for a long modeling session for a
client. (A nasty monster type thingy they wanted.....)
Now I'd had my speakers on full during the afternoon and forgot to turn them down (I'd recorded the audio for the tutorial at too low a level and
was going to fix this in post the next day.) So after spending till 2.30 am modeling this damn monster I settled down for a bit of ATS before
turning in for the night.
It was at this point that the 'oh my god no way!' came up, I nearly soiled my pants, my other half nearly had a coronary and our son woke up
scared half to death in the next room. Now that wouldn't have been so bad but it was his 1st night with his bedroom light off (he'd had the usual
fears of the dark), as a result it took us 3 weeks to get him not to wake up at exactly the same time every night screaming his head off.
I can laugh about it now, but please for the love of god and the sake of ALL our sanity's (as well as sleeping childrens) kill those noisey ad's! I
don't mind the ATS ad's as rule as they help with the upkeep of the site, but some of these are bordering on mental torture.....
...now if someone can just give me the address to the people behind that smiley ad so I can send any future thereapy bills to.....
