    ...or something.

    This has happened to me three times today. I gather it's auto-generated code, therefore a quick hearty slap to the ad provider (Burst?) may be in order?

    I click on the google ads because they dont bother me.

    Besides the Vonage flash ads use about 30% CPU if I don't block them.

    Yeah the flash ads can be annoying sometimes but you can right click and uncheck play and then they are still and no longer cause you to go insane :)

    No idea what could have caused that mate, I know Burstnet hae been making alot of cahgnes recently, but I don't think the result of that would affect one user!

    Yup, about ten minutes ago.

    I'll grab the source next time it does it.

    It did it again, however due to the lovely Java-Scripty output of doom, the source remains the same regardless of what ad is showing. Quite annoying, however I think I'm going to put this down to Safari and KHTML being a wibbling pile of weird (ie: I'll blame my browser ;))

    Got that beat, no ads, and the page adjusts to use the space the ad was taking up. :p

    You have no idea how much that annoys me, but we won't get into that to stay on topic.

    I intend to when it next happens, don't want to go back to fox though, it's no where near as nice as Safari :\

    I'll re-phrase then:

    don't want to go back to <any other browser here> though, it's no where near as nice as Safari :\
