Dice Roll: The Phantom Gambler

@canion This was great. I just didn't like the silly over-text-buttons on the side of the article, made it harder to read. Such a UI fail.

@kaa I didn’t see those - I have a Raspberry Pi running Pi-hole ad blocker so it must have taken care of them!

@kaa had to turn off uBlock to see these over-text-buttons you talk of. Clearly, they don't know how bad their CSS is - it's so bad that my adblocker fixed it for them!!!

@kaa ghostly did fine for a while. But it’s mainly for blocking trackers. Background stuff. UBlock is a serious ad blocker and definitely needed by everyone.
