    when i visit this forum with my Ipad..i get a spam attack.

    last night; wanted to check in.

    as soon as i open up the norCAL site. pow!

    this tiny window from Comcast pops up in the middle of my screen saying..dear client (i am not a comcast client)..you have won the $10,000 prize..

    just a tiny white window..with a ominous button on the bottom that says "close window"..i suspect that button will release some nefarious demon into my ipad. i closed it using my top toolbar, and shut the pad down.

    wtf? can i load something on my ipad? i am currently on my work computer that has a bitching firewall..

    So, what are you going to do with the 10k?
    What's the difference between red and green?

    Apparently nothing if you’re on a bike.

    Are you insinuating that Barrister Robert Joseph is not going to kindly deposit the proceeds of $25 million USD into my funds account on the fortnight?

    Right on. Thanks for reporting and checking folks. This is from one of our unsold ad inventory ad vendors with an advertiser called '33across' posing as legit. It's more than the usual thievery Comcast is pulling on us all .

    Yeah, it wasn't Comcast, it was the ad server trying to use familiar cues to make it seem legit. It showed up as Comcast when I was home (hurry up and build more fiber, Sonic), then Amazon/AT&T when I was up at the family cabin in Tahoe (with the world's slowest DSL internet).
