    This is what slows my access to this site on days like today. As I stare impatiently at the sickly pukey off white blank screen and it says as.forumfoundry.com.

    I'm just kind of guessing, but I think it's an advertising thing. I think forumfoundry might be associated with the owners of the site or maybe they just provide some kinda advertising service to the site. I think I saw somewhere once where there was contact info for here and the email addy was @forumfoundry.com. If you use a browser like Firefox (maybe others, I dunno) you can block content from whatever domain you want, so you can make it so you don't see ads or whatever from specific domains. I think the add-on you want is called adsense, but I'm not 100% sure. maybe someone else can jump in and help, I'm not very technical. :)

    Actually Amanda ... that's a great explanation. FireFox has a little add on called "No Script" that makes it easy to do so.

    The actual ads are on the site itself, but scripting has gone a little over board in many sites so it slows things down. Also, most of the scripts NoScript blocks don't even work on all devices or browsers. I have to block most of them because while programming in my IDE it's impossible to do anything with too much "stuff" happening in the browser, also it makes it easier to surf and work on multiple sites.
