    Ya Know What? Fuck This Shit...

    Sorry gang, I've had enough. Redirects while composing a post are one thing, yet having the site simply stop working completely is enough. I've had it with the "network timeout" bullshit.

    It would seem that any contact to this site (for me) must go through some sort of "ad-server", which breaks down and gives up altogether. Try posting a response, let alone starting a thread. Best of luck to you.

    Who needs this crap? Who needs to jump through unjust hurdles simply to post? Enough already. I've been as supportive as possible, yet this is simply bone-headed nonsense at this point.

    Fix it or end it. I'm as serious as a heart attack. Perhaps the hook up to "burstnet" (I believe that's what it's called) that keeps showing up is not correct. Whatever, that should not be my problem.

    You wish for people to view the site, and therefore see the ads. I get it. Too bad the ads are preventing some of us from viewing the site to begin with.

    Sort of self-defeating, wouldn't you say?

    Brett, I don't know if that would help (if it's not too late for some alternative ad ideas), but... I've been posting at homerecording.com for some time, and they have adsense keywords implemented. As in, every 50th/100th word in every post is turned into a hover-over link, from what I get based on the key words library a webmaster specifies. It's not only less annoying than pop-ups/banners, it's also alot more beneficial. I had clicked on hundreds of them thru the months of posting there, while you don't have to if you don't want to.

    Just my 2 cents, for what it's worth.

    Iam not a computer nerd I just like this place. Shit I dont care about the ads I had dial up until last year. I can live with a few ads.When I was a kid we all watched the dot on the tv for 3 min til the pic came on. Keep the ads keep the site.

    the ads...well, whatever. that doesn't bother me to the point of leaving the place. however, is that the reason the site seems to be running slow? it does seem to take a long time (for about the last month or so) for pages to load. it may just be my computer but other websites don't seem to be doing it. it does seem much better this morning.

    A bit inconvenient but nothing to lose sleep over or flat out leave.

    I don't get any popups or redirects. A good popup blocker prevents all that. Chef, you need to find a good popup blocker and you will be good to go.

    The ads are a sign of the times. Find a site this large that doesn't have ads, and I bet you probably won't find one. It can't be cheap to own a site this large, and I support Brett in everything he is trying to do. He shouldn't have to pay out of his own pocket so all of us have a place to stay at.

    Are all of you not using any pop up blockers?? I use Firefox, with all popups blocked here, and this place is as fast as it ever has been. Even in 2000-2003 when I was on campus with a T3 connection. Right now I have the slowest DSL I can get (aka cheapest) and this place is as fast as any website I go to.

    Really. This is so dumb to get so bent about. Firefox. Download it. It's free. It's better. It's faster.

    I have not had any problems worth getting spun out about in the least since it all started.

    Chef, I'm kind of surprised you're frustrated enough to be so vocal about it. Honestly, to the point of immaturity. I'll be blunt.

    i try to give chef the benefit of doubt.... but I have a general rule of thumb,
    if you whine you are leaving, just leave, anything else is just an attention cry.

    This place has a lot less issues, bugs, pop-ups then most boards i have been on.

    work with Brett instead of whinning about it.
