The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
I do not use an adblocker or maintain a hosts file. Usually, the sites I go to aren't too bad with ads anyway. I have to admit to becoming annoyed when I have to wait more than a few seconds for a web page to finish loading due to ads/videos/feeds/etc. If the content is worth it, I'll wait or move on and let it finish...if not, then it's goodbye and on to the next item.
As for the ads themselves, I pretty much ignore them and skip when given a chance.

I agree that they paid for ad space/time and have the right to pitch their wares in a nonintrusive manner, that is a quick loading visual/text in a predictable place. If I'm interested, I'll click, if not, then I just ignore it. What I hate is the 'in your face' approach where you have to click/skip through their pitch before viewing what I came there for.
For those who love dual-mode gcc distros like TDM-gcc,
I've created this little clang-cl.bat file which tries to do the same
for clang-cl. No freaking "vcvarsall.bat" silliness.
:: Dual-mode .bat file for clang-cl.
:: Use as "clang-cl.bat -m32" or "clang-cl.bat -m64"

:: If used without a '-m32' or '-m64', simply calls the first

Beware, little tested with cmd (the shell from hell IMHO) as I mostly use JPsoft's
4NT (which still works as a charm in Win-10 approx 12 years after it was created).
On a serious note - and since I have no idea what you are talking about it's difficult to be serious - this would probably be best served if you post it as a tip: Submit a new Article or Tip[^]
Add a little more info on what problem it's trying to solve, and submit it (a downloadable version of the .BAT file would be good as well).
Tips and Articles last a lot longer than Lounge posts, which will be paged out of sight by the beginning of next week and may never be seen again. They are also easier to search for!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
