    Ever wonder what happens when you mouse over the ATI ad too much? I've attached an image of what it looks like in Opera. Check out the number of images downloaded at the bottom, mostly from the ad.

    I'm sorry, what am I looking at?
    The advert looks a wee bit mis-aligned.. but there's nothing we can do about that, all we store locally is the generation code, the actual code for the adverts is not created by us. Also, I highly doubt there are that many images, I just loaded the front page to a total of 61 objects. 3 generated from the advert banner.

    he's saying he has a gigure whih represents downloaded images..all he needs to do is mouseover and the figure grows

    I think that's what he's saying, but I don't know anything about opera, and I can't find the image downloaded referance

    The adverts are something that we don't currently control so these ads that seem bloated are out of my control :(

    Nice of you to support the site by blocking the adverts.

    Depends on how you're blocking them.

    The ads are text based o_0
    Anyway, I think it's more to do with clicks rather than loading/displaying.

    Send me cash. :p

    Nope, just keep clicking the ads. They're hardly worth blocking anyway.
