in reply to Ever heard of AdCycle?

I don't know about the rest of you. But I outright refuse to help anyone asking for assistance with advertising. If they can't figure it out, then that's a good thing for the rest of us. I've got some interesting filters on my home machine, which causes an animated gif of static to appear in about 80% of the banner ads all over the web. Nicely snaps the link in two as well, so I can't accidentally click on it.

Let's all remember a recent quote from User Friendly. "I don't lie, I market!"

End of rant.

    You know that's fine. I am reluctant to help someone pollute the world with more advertising myself. But..

    This message was originally written in a time when advertising was abundant and many things in the Internet World were free. When the pinheads finally got the message that there wasn't much gravy in the internet advertising world, a lot of funding dried up, and then a lot of free things started to disappear.

    I'd like to recommend that every regular at PM make it a point to routinely visit the sponsor's ad and navigate around the sponsor site by choosing at least three links. Sponsors of this site annoy me only a little with banner ads. And the whole mass of wrong-headed things that are commonly believed in the advertising industry can wait for another rant (on another more appropriate, site).

    ...All the world looks like -well- all the world, when your hammer is Perl.

[Corion]: But I don't expect more than 100 to be active at the same time, so I'm not really sure if there is a not-too-fancy data structure that is maintained with few lines of code where the performance is better than the linear scan ;)
[Corion]: But I should do a mock-up program so that others can see what I'm talking about ;)
[robby_dobby]: Corion: I hope you know all too well that passing around "fancy" datastructures is a recipe for disaster :-)
[robby_dobby]: As in, it's-too-fancy- that-it-will-be- messy-to-handle
[choroba]: bit vectors as keys?
[robby_dobby]: Hmm, I keep falling asleep at my desk, while maintaining an active appearance. Am I getting old?
[robby_dobby]: Every time I fall asleep, there's a small guy in the dreams, shouting "Whoo!" and it jolts me awake. :/
[Lady_Aleena]: robby_dobby, at least you aren't driving. I seem to always be driving somewhere in my dreams and end up at a weird house.
