1. the area under the menu bar is too narrow/small for having tips.

2. I was thinking about having only one book ad/page, and having it 
randomized at the build time. So you get a different ad on different 
pages. Of course they will be the same when you come back to the same 
page, but they will change every time the site gets updated.

since the site is completely static, we cannot serve real random ads. 
Not that we plan on running any ads at all other than mod_perl books.
