We at K5 think about property rights and commercial ethics a lot, and why should this case be any different? The good people of gazeta.pl who have commissioned these fascinatingly bleak photographs don't ask much of us in return for the privilege of viewing them, all they want is for us to look at their banner ads. Unfortunately their web page designer has rendered the photos unseeable in the browser I'm using.
Alas, they are in Polish! Now I'm not one of those language chauvinists who believes the world should speak my language for my convenience. Admittedly the fault is all mine. But I suspect that at least a quarter of the K5 readership, Hell, maybe even half, can't read Polish either.
Still, plunging blindly on in the interest of fairness, I offer the following transcriptions of these three (three should be enough) banner ads (least near good as I can make em out)
Here's a Flash banner with a cute little choo-choo train chugging from right to left! The train reads "Wakacyjna Gielda Informacji". I think this is a link to gazeta.pl's own "komputer" section, so if you want news and tips for your komputer that's the first place to go look!
Hey kids! Go see the movie Tomb Raider!!!!! It's got Angelina Jolie in it, she's really cute n sexy!!!!!
...ad says "Szkota jazdy rajdowego mistrza FRANCJI" and it shows some small European sports sedan - pic's too small to make out the brand, unfortunately - torque steering through a turn on a wet auto-X track. You could be having this much fun! Sell your lumbering SUV and buy a European sports sedan today! Start enjoying the ride to work again!
Finally (at the bottom edge of the home page) mad propz to our sponsors and 'quipment vendors at IBM, Sun, bea (?) and AltaVista. We at gazeta.pl couldn't have done it without you!
OK, there's your browser-independent ads (even work in Lynx!) so 'sall better now! Y'all read this post and you too will have paid the penny to see those cool Afghanistan pix.

false to the present,
