Yes. I find that the Age even breaks for me at times because of a DNS
error in the middle of the page because of this feeding complexity from
multiple sources. I turn off ActiveX or at least get an alert from the
browser before launching.
I waited for the infamous www.jibjab.com animation the other day when I had
some time, only to find that it wouldn't play on my machine 4mb later. If
you're on broadband, it is hilarious and worth looking at.
