Hey, wow. My firewall's even more overpowered (Celeron 600, on dialup -
used to be my main box till I got an Athlon) so I've just tried this.
Easy to set up from /usr/share/doc even if (like me) you haven't got a
f**g clue what you're doing, and not only does it zap ads, it seems to
magically speed up response times across the board (even on the first
access to a page). Cool! Thanks.

Note: adzapper's in testing, but not in stable; but it doesn't depend
on anything beyond stable, so it dpkg -i's straight in.
