    Yea Tedob1, if you look at the bottom of the page you will see a reference to internet.com.

    I am sure it's no big thing, except, the advert's will be the next thing to come along.

    You actually see those? I have IE 6 and it automatically blocks those ads from even appearing on my screen.

    Formatting my server because someone hacked into it sounds pretty boring to me...
    That\'s why it\'s all about AntiOnline.com!

    a 1x1 pixel probably isnt a bug they are used to track users i wasnt 100% sure on what etc so i went to google

    to quote
    II. Overview of Pixel Tags

    Pixel tags are small graphic files, invisible to the human eye, which allow Web sites or other online services to track Internet users. They are known by many names, such as Web bugs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs or 1x1 GIFs. On Web pages, they are generally used by a third party to monitor the use of that page. In HTML capable e-mail, they are often used by the sender to track whether (and when) the recipient opened the message.

    A pixel tag can collect a variety of information about an Internet user, including:


    The IP (Internet Protocol) address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the tag appears;
    The URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of the page on which the pixel tag appears;
    The time the page containing the pixel tag was viewed;
    The type of browser that fetched the pixel tag; and
    The identification number of any cookie on the consumer's computer previously placed by that server. (In addition, it can set a new cookie.)
    Since pixel tags are too small to be seen (typically one pixel by one pixel), one generally can know they are present only by examining the source code of the Web page. A typical pixel tag might look something like this in the code:


    <IMG SRC=ad.third-party-server.com/webbug.gif HEIGHT=1 WIDTH=1>
    If you are looking through HTML source code to find pixel tags, you might run a search for "height=1" and view the results.

    A. Third-Party Pixel Tags

    Third-party pixel tags are generally placed on a Web page by the site operator for the benefit of a third party. This enables the third party to gather the same information available to the Web site host. While the information collected is duplicative, it is important to note that it is collected directly by the third party. This enables the third party to audit any usage information provided by the site operator.

    Thus, if two companies had a contract which paid, for example, based on the number of unique users who arrived on a particular page, the sending company might use a pixel tag to audit the log files provided by the receiving company.

    In addition, pixel tags are sometimes used to allow Web site operators to enable third parties to perform logging and analysis. A small Web site might not have the economies of scale to perform extensive log analysis in-house, and may wish to cut costs by engaging a third party.

    no, you're not supposed to see it, that's the point... with that 1 pixel gif, they're able to track every click you make on their site...

    you'd think their http logs would be enough... but no they need yet another source of information.. Didn't JP disable http logs on the old servers?... did jupiter media agree to do the same?? cuz if they did this would get them the same info, without http logs...

    How do you use single-pixel gifs?

    JUPM and its advertisers may use single-pixel gif images, sometimes referred to as web bugs or web beacons, to count Web page accesses and gather some general statistical information. JUPM does not gather personal information through the use of these images. Our advertisers may use single-pixel gifs that can track personal information from cookies that may have been previously placed on a user's computer by an advertiser.
