Is Anyone Else getting the Tiger Direct Popup all the time?

Postby MoboCop » Fri Sep 06, 2002 10:36 am

I just noticed this now...and it would help to know if others are having this problem or if something is wrong with my cookies.

The Tiger Direct pop under should only show 1 time every 24 hours. It was working properly for me until today.

if the cookies are deleted, the pop under windows (tiger direct, and return path- microsoft internet explorer) will show up when going to mb.org home page.

that is correct len..but it was strange I was getting the tiger popup everytime I loaded a page.

It has stopped now so I am assuming it was some glitch on my client machine here, not with the code.

Sometimes I get a barrage of ads from Tiger Direct...sometimes none...

i left the cookies alone, closed all windows, went to mb.org home page, and not a single pop under window.

perhaps they are going so far as to keep isp #'s- might be a commercial clause? i really don't know why- perhaps hierarchical structure needs to be fine tuned (multiple accesses are seen by their server as multiple accounts- yet it's your access to the server while others are accessing the site? do you have more than one account w/ multiple cookie sets?

other idea is i'm accessing through win2kpro, while you guys (i assume) are accessing through linux? or their is a windows linux translation- if this is babble please correct me!!!!

I wrote the code to limit the tiger direct pop-up to once per 24 hours.

It seems to work properly from home. I will see if my office computer is still wacky tomorrow.

I am usually opening straight to the forums. I dont really go anywhere else on the site much anymore. When I do go to the main page to get access for MOBOT, I occasionally get the pop-ups. (there are a few days where I vist the main page 3-4 times a night. and then there are times I dont hit the main page for weeks.).....

It would seem that if you are already logged on to the forums, you would not get the pop-ups.... :?

just my two cents

:arrow: haven't seen the tiger direct pop up for a week, still getting another of varying marketing content.

tiger ad has been removed and I am testing another pop-under provider...not going so well so far though.
