    Default Problems loading PCworld website

    Is it just me or do other people find this websites blogs excruciatingly slow to load.
    When I nav to the blogs I get the header and title instantly - then wait at least 40 seconds for the content to appear...
    The browser (FF3) says 'waiting for view.adtmt.com...'

    Yup, and we're working out hardest to get the Ads removed from PF1 altogether also.

    Its a known problem, search PF1, you'll find FFBM have a mutiny on their hands

    Another vote for privoxy!

    Even so, I have recently experienced slow load times.

    Slow loading times, Think of how I feel sitting on 52kbps Dialup, I generally click pf1 on my favorites, go outside and have a cup of coffee, and come back inside, it generally loads by then. Getting used to it now.

    I dont think Fairfax is going to remove the ads (its their revenue)
    Id rather push a Holden than drive a ford
