Hey All


I recently became a subscriber and I can't believe how much faster it is to browse and how great it is not to have all the adverts.
Well worth the $$$ spent.

Advertising scripts are notorious for blocking execution of the page and slowing down the entire page load.

I know some people are not bothered by ads - I am not, unless they are popups, popunders and things with screaming noises.

If I visit a site with these kinds of ads I simply don't go back. But reality is that everyone on the Internet needs to pay for their bills. We try to block anything that would annoy me personally - so you can be sure there won't be any ads with this kind of content, or other bad stuff...

Sorry, I should have also mentioned that I wanted to support the Geekzone community too, I do seem to spend a lot of time on here and it's helped me out in a lot of ways. It wasn't just for getting rid of the ads.

freitasm: By the way, thanks for subscribing!


Sweet as bro!

Also turning off the sidebar makes the forums load extrememly fast. Here on an Xtra ADSL connection, over WiFi I can load a forum page well within 1 second.

I work in advertising so I'm immune to ads! They barely get a glance from me I can safely say I've never clicked one.
