    OT? question for html/java fiends

    Why is it that the stupid pop-up ads for this site (and every other one) load instantaneously with little applets, flash movies, etc, but the actual site takes longer to load? Sure, I could use a pop-up blocker and all, but I'm just curious why the actual web-sites can't be made as efficient as the ads.

    Thanks for educating a script/html/java noobie.

    Many pop-up ads preload.

    either that. or the way the website is written, it waits until it downloads the adds first then starts displaying everything else. So it's just a priority thing... You gotta pick some order(paralell is possible, but thats another story) and some add companies force it so you get their add first. Obviously they think that if nothing but their add is on the screen for a few seconds, then you are more likely to notice it.

    Well, either notice it or: (a) get annoyed and go to another website (b) get annoyed and go back to playing d2 :) - the most likely (c) get annoyed and finally buy a pop-up blocker (d) all of the above.

    Hmmm. I always did pretty well on multiple choice tests, let me see...
