No Ad Slashdot

The Cheap Alternative to Subscribing to Slashdot

Follow these five easy steps and never see another Slashdot ad again:

  1. Go into your Homepage Preferences [slashdot.org].
  2. Scroll down to the “User Space” textarea, and paste the following four lines of HTML in there:

    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://pknet.com/~joe/adkiller.js”></script>
    <script type=”text/javascript”><!–
    delAds();
    –></script>

    (click here [pknet.com] to download the adkiller javascript code and put it on your own webspace, in case you don’t trust me 🙂

  3. Scroll down the list of slashboxes, and make sure the “User Space” checkbox (inexplicably located between “MP3.com” and “Myther.com”) is checked.
  4. Return to the front page [slashdot.org], and your Slashbox should be there, quietly zapping all iframes and banner-shaped images on the page.
  5. There is no step 5!! It’s that easy.

I have not tried it yet so your milage may vary. Feel free to post your experience with the hack.
