Over the last month, several enhancements have been made to the IRI Atlas. Following are the salient points:

For 4+ years, this site has been maybe one of the very few sites on the internet that has been running completely ad-free. Also, IRI Express is the Only mobile Rail app which is completely ad-free. In fact, seeing the ad-free nature of this site, some intermediary ISPs and other parties seem to be illegitimately inserting ads in this site.

So, once again, users will be in total control of their own experience. You will be free to turn on ads to support the site, or turn them completely off with a single click - no further hassles. How this may help. 1.

If there is something left over, we may look at properly organizing the much-demanded Admin and Member melas, and other rail-oriented social events. If the experiment fails, the entire thing will be rolled back, and we'll continue as we are. Thanks.
