Slow loading adverts

"My problem with Derek's site is that every page I open starts with three giant advertisements that take an age to load on my *r*p*y machine."

I don't know what you use, but if it's IE11 or such...

I use GNU/Linux with Firefox+adblocker at home, and this forum loads instantly and is fast.

At work, I am forced to use MS Windows with IE11 - and visiting here, it just locks IE11 up for minutes at a time trying to load the ads - most times I just have to kill it and start again.

So your computer is not ropey - the advert servers that load the ads are (imagine how many million of hits they get each minute?).

P.S. is ropey a dodgy word?
