AvCan seems slow

Post by Canoehead » Thu Jan 02, 2014 1:26 pm

Anyone else find the pages "hang up" when they load?

I've tried a few browsers- same thing.

Yes - connectivity is intermittent. Fine for a minute - then nothing for a minute.
No other websites affected so I'm reasonably sure it's not at this end.

Always very difficult to say for sure with these intermittent things, but it seems to be. I'll post again if it shows problems.

The problem is the ad servers that the site is using. These are beyond Joe's control.
When a page hangs, just hit the stop button and the page will display without the offending ads.

Women and planes have alot in common
Both are expensive, loud, and noisy.
However, when handled properly both respond well and provide great pleasure

I don't really mind whose control it's under; but it was the CSS style sheet load that was failing most often, not an ad. Anyway, seems a lot better now.

A couple of times AVG has popped up and blocked a few backdoor threats actually. they were linked to photos (presumably the ads since the thread had no images)
