Beware: This is a very short article with a massive advertising overhead attached to it. It maxed out my cable modem for about 4 minutes before I gave up and aborted the connection.

I hate those as when my computer ends up trying the load them it usually go into lock-down, not just the modem but the whole dang computer and I have to pull the plug and then restart it, it is really a pain. :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

loaded up in less than 10 seconds here but then i use firefox with the adblock plus addon so no ads loaded, cable 50mb/s connection and a quad core intel i5 proccessor and 12GB ram may have helped somewhat :D

With Chrome and ADP (Add block pro) it loaded and was playing in just over a second. Not a bad wee article.

Tried it again in whatever Windows 10 comes with instead of IE, took about 2 seconds for the video to start playing, that was without any ad blocker installed, not a bad result!

I heard my computer growling a little, and there was some slight lag, but all in all I was able to watch it in about 10 seconds.

It is ad heavy though. But no where near as bad as topix. Topix crashes firefox every time for me and I have to change over to Chrome.

Only a second or two with my DSL line, Firefox and ABP.
I didn't bother to watch the whole video (not all that interested) but I did notice the person jumping and twirling at the beginning was not regimental :wink:
