Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

    It would seem that recently Arrse discovered how to display adverts specific to the poster's country as determined by where Arrse sees him logged on. Clever.

    Sadly, the megacorporation that pays my salary routes all of its European traffic out of a gateway in Boeblingen in Germany, so now as well as not being able to watch BBC iPlayer whilst working, I also get the majority of my adverts in German.

    It isn't actually a problem, since most of those adverts that have impinged upon my consciousness were for cash advances and buildings loans and I seek neither, I worry that I might be missing out on the latest great offer. (No I don't, I lie like a cheap NAAFI watch.)

    It would be nice if I had a setting somewhere that would enable me to choose the source country of the adverts I allow Arrse to send me in order to generate revenue.

    Shall I hold my breath? No?
