these past few months, ads on this blog have caused some major problems, increasing the loading time of my blog. on more than one occasion the server for the ads may encountered problems of their own (crashed? hacked? attacked?), acceptable in RL standard, but took too long (over a week i think) for them to fix the problem and recover to their 100% state.
providing ads for blogs is a business after all, but if a company is not acting like they're running a business, maybe they dont deserve to get loyal subscribers.
after discussing with my advisor (wife).. as of this day, 01/09/09, i am removing the problem ad widget from this blog. and i'll do a bit of reading into this matter and maybe try out other ad provider site thing, of sort
