First you have to identify the URL's of the adverts you want to remove,
then you have to have a HTTP server somewhere capable of responding with
the replacement image. When you have figured this out all you need is a
small redirector script which does a search/replace on the URL's,
replacing advert URL's with the URL to your image.
