Working fine for me, maybe it was an earlier outage or routing problem on your ISP.

Either way put in some code to fall back to a local version deployed on your webhost eg:

 

<script src="//ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery/jquery-1.7.min.js"></script>

 

<script>window.jQuery || document.write('<script src="js/jquery-1.7.min.js">\x3C/script>')</script>

Always insist on using my own hosting for things like jquery and fonts etc.

It's back again.
The site is dove.co.nz. Had talked to them a couple of times as my firefox will not let their site work without having to give permission to third party scripts (I use noscript) and a couple of other issues with speed when aspnetcdn or similar is slow.

Seeing more and more of this issue - especially with sites where facebook, twitter, google fonts, gogle apis, jquery, ajax stuff and third party ads are involved. sire is 90% loaded and hangs owing to third party slowness or failure.

We avoid third party queries where possible, and same as you tend to use a cached version with a recheck every so often.

However many of our suppliers aren't doing that - and suddenly stuff doesn't work right.

By the way - did you guys / gals catch what happened to Nz weather site last year? virused a whole range of PCs as the third party ad server got hacked and passed on hacked ads. Another reason to host your own stuff :)

It's not really practical for every business to host their own ad network though...

That's the risk you take when you use addons to modify what the website delivers.

NoScript is kind of a sledgehammer approach.
