JavaRanch staff, your banners are missing. The adds that are usually on the top and bottom of every page are just a black outlined box with a red x in the middle. On hover it says "unavailable". Figured I should point this out since this effects your revenue.

I'm seeing everything okay.

Can you send a pic?

I have to run to a meeting real quick... but I am still not seeing any banners, just double checked. I will post a pic once I get back if I still don't see them.

Here's one of the bottom banner. As you can see it's not just GoToMeeting...

I can't see the 'goToMeeting' ad. However, when I click on the banner, I land on my company's "THIS SITE IS BLOCKED AND NOW YOU'RE GONNA GET FIRED" page.

So maybe nothing is wrong with the image - maybe it's just hosted at a site you're company doesn't want you to go to.

Good point Fred. I don't know how I never noticed it before (blocked ads)... but that is the most likely explanation. Disregard

The GoToMeeting and Adobe Flex ads are coming from a new service we're trying out; unlike most of our ads, the images are not hosted here. So I think Fred's explanation is spot on.
