Heh I understood what you wrote, and just played on it a little bit, as if the penguins themselves were aggressive

"Aggressive" was a good word to use to describe the high CPU loading, and translated appropriately, no worries. Either your English, or the translator you use, is very good -- no problems.

Cheers,

When I first saw the thread title I thought you were complaining that the commercials contained violent content

I found that Google inserts the commercials.

This one is very CPU aggressive: http://members.home.nl/jmr272/images/synt09.png and http://members.home.nl/jmr272/images/synt10.png

When going through LQ I open interesting topics in a new tab, so I can go through them easily. When Google inserts the dancing penguin and I have 4+ tabs open, I see CPU load in the system monitor go sky high. And the CPU fan starts to whine...

Are others having an issue with the R1Soft ad? If so I can try contacting them (or disable the ad).

Perhaps LQ can introduce the 'green ad': less flash is better for the carbon dioxide footprint.

Or a limiting factor: only one flash animated ad per page. I don't mind ads. They bring in money.
