I don't know who this web site is (as it won't load), but when i download a page from PCA, I get a constant 'waiting for' that means that the PCA page never actually finishes downloading, as won't load....

The glory of FF's Adblock extension....

Anyone else had this problem, or know who they are?

Yes, I have the same problem and it's a pain and No, I don't know who they are.

I tried a reverse DNS lookup, but couldn't get a result.

I have solved the problem, by using the FF adblock extension ( click here ), and blocking the site ( What are they though?? some form of advertising?

If PCA wants me to see adverts, the need to make sure the ad's download in good time. If it sits there for 'waiting for' for 5 minutes (PLUS), I will have moved on before the ad arrives. So i won't see the ad, blocked or not.

I am on 256 BB, so it is not that my connection is slow, just that the "Claranet.co.uk" server can't keep up.

I've blocked these in Adblock in Firefox if anyone is use it:

http: // www .vibrantmedia.com/intillitxt/*

http: //*

Just enter them into Adblock Preferences without the spaces of course and everything should work as normal.

I think the http: // www .vibrantmedia.com/intillitxt/* is responsable for putting the little green lines under the keywords in posts, not sure about the other one.
