Hey everyone. I usually don't post stuff like this but I wanted to know your opinion if these Google Adsense banners are too intrusive on my site. Any feedback you could give me would be great.

Also check some of the download links such as the sidewinder patch to see if you like the placement of the ads. They seem a little intrusivve to me but I want other peoples opinions.

You actually have to click on ads in order to make money. The making money part is not what I am worried about. The intrusive look of the ads is what I am more concerned about. I haven't made money with Google Adsense in the almost 2 years I have had it.

Well that is an excellent point. In reality I don't see why I keep them. There is always that hope that maybe they will start generating income. People obviously assume I am looking for a cheap ploy for money. It isn't about the money. I would really like to make sure the website looks asthetically pleasing and hopefully make a little bit of money while giving out useful info.
