    I'm waiting and waiting for MacRumors to load.
    In the bottom left of my Firefox, I see it waiting to load content from this website: a.tribalfusion.com

    What is this? Am I infected with spyware???


    Something seams VERY s-l-o-w.......

    Tribal Fusion is an ad-serving company that is used on MacRumors. If there is a problem with their servers or a network hang-up somewhere, you may experience ad-loading issues. These interruptions are generally brief, so let us know if they persist.

    Yes, this has happened before.

    No, your not infected with spyware. Tribal Fusion is an ad network which MacRumors uses, and when they have a problem it can cause the pages to load really slow. It usually fixes itself (based on past threads at least).


    EDIT: Three minutes too slow... I guess tribal fusion isn't the only slow thing tonight. :eek:
