Some advertising on Xboxyde ?

Some advertising on Xboxyde ?

My boss made me understand last week that considering how much bandwidth the main xboxyde server uses it would be "nice" that I participate a bit in the costs. I don't want to switch hosting since what I have now is pretty much what's best available here in France so I'm thikink about putting a Google Ad-Sense vertical text Ad like I did on Games media mirror. Before I do that I'd like to know if it is a problem for you guys or not. Just reply to this news and tell me what you think. I think I can more or less deal with the costs without advertising but it would be a great help.
Of course I hate as much as anyone else these awful and intrusive flash ads and stuff, I'd rather stop this site than use stuff like that.
Update : The ad is now online for a one week test period. I'll decide if it stays or goes next sunday.
Update 2 : The ad has been removed. What I lost in credibility having this banner was definitely not worth $2 a day ;)

I don't mind an ad left or right, als long as it isn't intrusive flash ads like you said ;)
pop-ups are OK too, my firefox blocks them anyway :P

yeah that's fine with me, as long as there are no .exe pop ups, or any porn stuff

No popups, no flash, and certainly nothing borderline legal like that ;)

Please nooooooo, no popups, no ads, I like this website too much to see it going bad like a lot of them out there, but do it if ONLY if you really, really, really have to.
