Project Wonderful was the single last decent advertising service and I will miss it dearly. It didn't do any tracking, it wasn't invasive, there were no "bad ads". It was an image and a link. Sometimes a GIF. You had 100% control over what happened.

And now it's gone.

Indesign? game.
Excel? Wow, microsoft, you thought it was a spreadsheet thing? It's clearly a videogame
