Having resisted the lure of MySpace and Twitter, I succumbed to Facebook last night.
I'm not sure if was because my wife was away on business and I was bored, or because I wanted to get involved with the Age of Conversation group.
Whatever the reason, I could not believe that one of the first things I saw after joining was a garish, flashing banner ad.
Apparently I was the 999,999th visitor and I was to be congratulated.
Hopefully I won't come across any more of these annoying animated banners.
Say hello to Stan on Facebook.
