    Yup, MarketBanker is having problems... as soon as they're corrected, though, the ads will return. ;) (For those who haven't, it might be time to donate to get rid of the top/bottom ads, too! http://www.techguy.org/how2help/donate.html )

    ;)

    Yes you two are so right in that without the ads it is faster.

    Plus your be more happy with the page layout.

    Best money you can spend for what little it cost if your here all the time or even if you just like to help out.

    Google seems much faster. :) There are some interesting advertisers over there... be sure to visit theirs sites, as they're supporting ours!

    What's happening now?

    It seems like a 15-20 second delay has been added to every page!

    Is that BurstNet stuff doing this?

    Oho! Now it's fast again!

    The only difference is the ads at the side are displaying now, while before they weren't.

    I guess the ads stop the rest of the page from displaying until they are complete. That's pretty inconvenient when they are offline or delayed.

    Is there some way to let the important stuff display first, in case these ads are delayed?

    I believe you can donate to remove the ads.

    Obviously, but these unintended delays will still affect the vast majority of the public anyway. Not a good idea. ;]

    Oh yeah absolutely. Even if ya give the minamum. The whole page is so much better to work with. Plus you don't have all that sh.. blinking all over the place. Plus it helps to keep the site up and running smoothly. Call Microsoft once and see what it costs there. ;) I wish I could give more. :(

    Prospect :D

    Are these ads turned off when you donate ?

    The reason I ask is because I did donate and these sponsor items are still there ??? Curious
