what is that obnoxious chicken scratching in the pictures?
 
2002-04-06 11:15:57 AM  
Wow...hobbits...mmmmm
 
2002-04-06 11:17:37 AM  
Did I miss something or does fark have popups and popunder advertising now?
 
2002-04-06 11:19:56 AM  
I don't think fark does? Can't really do much about the links though, they always could...
 
2002-04-06 11:21:40 AM  
Did anyone else think "twin towers" subconsciously?
 
2002-04-06 11:23:09 AM  
I'll wait for the trailer itself. I'm sure it will be good.
 
2002-04-06 11:24:55 AM  
Actually, what was the pop-up for? Because yesterday I remember asking the same question... I opened up a new browser, came straight to fark, and BOOM... pop-up. It is plausible that it was a freak non-fark related incident... but, to have somebody else say the same thing now... hmmm... coincidence? Is it possible Drew now has some kinda random pop-up script? Like a pop-up that would affect every 100th hit or something like that?
 
2002-04-06 11:25:18 AM  
I think I just caught narcolepsy from that link.
 
2002-04-06 11:27:22 AM  
Btw, mine is a "Reduce your debt" pop-up... and, coincidentally... I just got it again! Fark does indeed have pop-ups now... wtf...
 
2002-04-06 11:28:30 AM  
AHH! It's off-topic, but the "Reduce Your Debt" banner gives a pop-up.
 
2002-04-06 11:29:19 AM  
anyone else here already have the fugging thing like I do??
*shrug*
I downloaded it almost a week ago.
odd.
well - i kind of expect this type of link here lately...
 
2002-04-06 11:30:09 AM  
Where were the airplanes?
 
2002-04-06 11:31:44 AM  
Back on-topic... screenshots do nothing for me. I didn't even go beyond the first page of them. No desire to. I'll wait until the (gasp) motion footage comes out... thanks tho.
 
2002-04-06 11:33:11 AM  
Screen captures of a movie trailer. Of a trailer. Is this what we're reduced to?
 
2002-04-06 11:34:50 AM  
See now, I can handle banner ads. Hell, I'll even click on them once in awhile because I like fark. But popups bug the crap out of me. I thought Drew had more respect for us than that.
 
2002-04-06 11:35:41 AM  
I never get pop ups from fark.com

You MAY have spyware installed on your machine. Check google.com's search engine for the word 'spyware' for one of many websites who can help you find out whether your machine has spyware on it, and if so, how to remove it.

Spyware is a 'stealth' program that is either installed on your machine using a security leak from not keeping your windows and browswers updated constantly.... or by being 'packed' with a program that is labled 'freeware'. The most common spyware people end up with is 'Gator' which is installed as any other plug in on the internet, prompting the exact same check boxes and looking safe.

You can check your tasklist for gator RIGHT NOW by hitting control/alt/delete, or by going to your add/remove programs under your control panel.

So, if you're seeing consoles on sites that SHOULD NOT have them, and no one else is, its probably spyware on YOUR machine.
 
2002-04-06 11:40:48 AM  
This is the one I keep getting. Maybe I have sypyware, I dunno. OffspringRocks and Eurytion get it too ;)

I agree 100% Battlecry... I mean, I have Opera and blocking banners is just a click away... but, still... it's annoying to have to turn it on and off. I make it a habbit not to visit *any* sities with popups on it, unless they are integrated into the sites design (such as video, trailers and such).

Drew, please, kill the pop-ups.

2002-04-06 11:43:56 AM  
Battlecry is CORRECT people... it is not spyware. The pop-up I have gotten twice now is the same one he just did a screen capture of. Far has pop-ups, people... get out of denial. I suggest you keep hitting refresh until you discover the truth. Aparently it comes along with the "reduce your debt" banner ad
 
2002-04-06 11:45:11 AM  
Back to topic... when do I get to see a pic of Shelob?
 
2002-04-06 11:48:56 AM  
If the popups come along with the banner, blame the ad host, not Drew.
 
2002-04-06 11:49:15 AM  
I've never seen a popup on Fark....
 
2002-04-06 11:50:56 AM  
Fark has had pop-ups before. if I remember correctly, sometimes one of the rotating banners the Ad people give Drew have an associated Pop-up. Once Drew finds out about it, he slaughter it with all his might and fury. Jeez a bunch of whiners
 
2002-04-06 11:52:03 AM  
neither have i until today. just keep refreshing, it will show up. afterwards, check for you fark cookie:

I'm such a trouble maker.. Me sowwy :(
 
2002-04-06 11:55:07 AM  
LOOK!!..more scenes of people walking, thats the same as the first movie!!!
 
2002-04-06 11:55:33 AM  
Do you think whoever posted the LoTR link is grinding their teeth over this turning into a spyware thread?
 
2002-04-06 11:58:02 AM  
I'm sure whoever thought this link was cool enough to submit is too busy masturbating to some sort of hobbit/furry anime fan fiction porn to care about this comment thread.
 
2002-04-06 11:58:10 AM  
Don't be sorry, dude. Stand your ground... hey, and to Drew's benefit, *maybe* he doesn't know about it... if that's the case, I'm sure he will do something about it... I guess we'll see soon enough.

And, I find it funny, and pathetic, when people say you are "whining" when you try to communicate a problem to the public... lol, idiot. God forbid anybody speak up.
 
2002-04-06 11:58:34 AM  
im not getting pop-ups, even after multiple refreshes (get a freeware pop-up killer nad stop whining) I never understood why people think everything is free...Drew needs to make money too (sheesh)
 
2002-04-06 11:58:38 AM  
Mmmmm... Hobbit porn...
 
2002-04-06 12:02:32 PM  
Eowyn is hot.
 
2002-04-06 12:12:14 PM  
Eh. Arwen's hotter.

I'd subscribe to Fark if anyone would give me a damn credit card...
 
2002-04-06 12:24:39 PM  
Huh?
 
2002-04-06 12:39:01 PM  
I got the pop up too.. and to answer Fissionchips, ya.. I subliminaly thought the same thing about the Twin Towers. Weird. I think its gonna take a while for that to go away. A long while.
 
2002-04-06 12:45:03 PM  
Wow that closeup pitcure of the one dude with the hair covering his face was so exciting I almost misplaced my 20-sided dice and my marble bag.
 
2002-04-06 12:45:15 PM  
Gandalf? Didn't he die/ fall to a pit which at impace would liquify him?

"what is that obnoxious chicken scratching in the pictures?"
I Believe it's Elvish for, "This movie will be three hours and still won't have an ending".

PS: Pics from the next TWO movies...

PS: I don't get any Popups...my vote's for spyware.
 
2002-04-06 12:56:17 PM  
Deltau922: Seek medical attention immediately. A misplaced marble bag is a serious condition. Getting those babies to descend can be a biatch.
 
2002-04-06 12:57:30 PM  
Count this as a vote AGAINST spyware. That stuff sucks.
 
2002-04-06 01:02:19 PM  
Hyoga

Although I am unfamiliar with the second book of the series, Gandalf through some unknown force (to me anyways) comes back with a whole new look and appears to have gone through a somewhat noticable transformation. To me it appears as if he has taken the position once held by Saruman before his fall from grace. That and he gets a horsy named Shadowfax.
 
2002-04-06 01:06:06 PM  
I already saw a quicktime capture of the trailer days ago floating around the web. FARK needs to keep up :D

I have an email out about the pop-ups, we are working on it.

2002-04-06 01:09:08 PM  
Ok, now I got this little "reduce debt" floating around the screen. That's not funny Drew, stop.
 
2002-04-06 01:12:02 PM  
As if this is still going to be funny....
