    Hi bt. I've been reading for about 5 years and love the site. Unfortunatly, it does not run well on my xoom with all the flash u have everywhere. I know its needed for revenue but could u please devise another method of using it as it slows down your site?

    I know i can uninstall flash but I'd li ke to keep it.

    I'm not after a mobile site either, i like the full site.

    Could u perhaps use some javascript to reduce memory requirements of the pages?

    Thanks

    Iain

    have you thought about setting flash so it only loads on demand?

    The video style adverts you have been running for a while are really distracting too.

    On my Samsung Galaxy S it's:

    Open Internet > Menu Key > More > Settings > Enable Plug-Ins (Flash) > On Demand.

    That way, when there's flash embedded on pages it's not loaded unless you click on it, and ask it to run.
