I’ve been meaning do to this for a while, but didn’t really have the time to SSH over and do it properly - as of now, Google advertising has been turned off. It was always more of an experiment and intelligence gathering than anything else (the only real way to test advertising and targeting tools is to use them).
There are a lot more interesting ad networks out there for blogs like Carbon, The Deck and Fusion, and I’m fed up with advertising cluttering the redesign I’ve been doing on and off for the past few months, so I decided to get rid of ads altogether for the moment as well as Facebook buttons and other visual noise.
Also, the old Aqua look for the favicon and iOS icons is out. The new one is inspired by the new Apple orb-ish thing they use for everything these days, and is a better match for the Unicode glyph I use.
