Default American readers

On the main site, where the Shoutbox used to be, can you please let me know what kind of ad you see? It should either be a Google ad, or a Dell ad

Thanks!

Canadians, you can ignore this, as you will only see the Google ad (which is why I can't see it, and am asking the readers )

Those are anonymous proxies, so that won't work! I tried that already.. The whole point of those proxies is to HIDE your identity!

Looks like the Dell are still going. Thanks guys!
