You know, I am not a dummy. I realize that a lot of internet sites keep their sites free to their users by selling commercial advertising space. I really don't have a problem with that. I appreciate it in a way, because I don't want to have to pay for using the internet more then I already do, but I really wish the advertisers would keep their ads to a minimum size, so that it doesn't interfere with the operation of my computer. I used to run on modem, which is a nightmare in itself. I now run on satelitte which has it's quirk too. When an advertisement is large, I can barely get my computer to function. Plus my computer is an older model and doesn't run the fastest anyway. Please, you can get the idea across without all the flash and megabyte usage. Ok, I had my little tyraid...I'm good now.

I'm with you...
I don't appreciate ads that make my computer freeze.

That certainly makes the advertiser memorable!
I will NOT be purchasing those products, so if that's what the purpose of the ad was, it succeeded.
