Post ack! new ads!
I don't know about anyone else, but occasionally it's been taking many minutes to load the videos. My usual method for dealing with this problem is to reload the puzzle. Unfortunately on the timed puzzles, when I do this I lose the puzzle. So I just let the ad time out on it's own(which, as I said, can take several minutes). This has been putting a serious crimp in my scores lately, as I lose the flow of doing puzzles quickly.

Anyway you can make the lagout quicker? Thanx

Hmm... I haven't noticed the ads affecting load time of a puzzle that much. Maybe it's your browser or internet connection? We have good days and bad days (for timed puzzles)... some days everything just clicks and on other days... like I would appreciate if someone could make my kids not cry right in the middle of a timed puzzle as it seriously distracts me and I totally lose focus. :-)

Btw, Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Hm, not sure what is going on. But the ads change around, so maybe you're seeing
a large "flash" ad. Right now the ads I'm seeing are about 2-3% of the total page size.

I've changed the settings so I have to approve each individual ad, I'll keep an eye
out for large ones..

I'm running Ubuntu, and that might have something to do with it. It's not really the big ads, it seems to only happen when they come from just one source. I'll keep my eye out for ip address and tell you more.
