    As per thread title. I'm using Chrome. My PC PC freezes until the top and side ad-bar loads, then it works again. It's only perhaps 5 seconds, but mildly irritating. Just thought I'd draw attention to it.

    As opposed to an unPC PC? I must admit my PC can be a little racist sometimes

    I like to think me being on here helps the people who design the site and write the content get paid. #holierthanthou

    :)

    I hash-tagged, Deck. Sorry. But yeah, adblock. However, it's never happened before. So it's either Flash Player itself or some jiggery pokery from their adserver.

    Feel bad for us mac users, when I type a comment the characters appear one per second. I'm still seeing the words 'users' while typing this bit.

    Mine freezes the same way, and that's on both Firefox and Chrome with their respective versions on AdBlock tried unsuccesfully. Does it still load the ads but just not display them?

    The Firefox one is almost certainly the PC though, the one running that is held together with tape and willpower.
