...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

Me too, at home... Firefox, AD-Blocking to the max. :D

But at work I use Mozilla with no Ad_Blocking... so I can help Pay EP's bills. :p

Otherwise it's the "rack" for me (they theatened me... really). :eek: :p

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

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 :\

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
