Journal hot_Karls_bad_cavern's Journal: Yeah, FlashBlock, kids.

Yep, we got it: FlashBlock!

So, now where was i in discussing Slashdot's Flash Ads? Oh wait, you're right, it doesn't really matter at all anymore. Thank you Moz devs...once again a great tool to fill a need of the community. i've not determined if it goes ahead and loads all the flash content in ram then just waits to display it if you wish. i'm leaning towards thinking that's what it does based on quick recollection of what i've seen so far. Then again, it's normally tempting the fates to make such wide postulations without having done real testing (or reading heh) first. Then again, this is Slashdot: everyone from "editors", users, clueless users, whip-sharp users, and regular joe's feels free to wildly wave their unbalanced opinions in lieu of rational thought and the scientific process (for further reading on the phenomenon, see slashdot::editor::michael). i'll do more of that thar readin'n'book larnin' today and get the scoop on FlashBlock, but damn does it work nicely so far. Enjoy :)
