I was in Byron Bay last night and peddling was out of the question.
So over the past while I've been having issues with my computer locking up due to resources.
I5 Laptop W10 ( clean install ) 4g Ram. Problem ended up being chrome hogging all the ram, leaving nothing to work with. Long story short I ran chromes task manger and it's this site ( even if not the current window ) slowly but surely chewing up ram, It opens at about 140mb and I can literally watch it climb to around 2.5 gig, then things start to freeze.
Ran dirtyfreeloader on the site and after a coupla hours it's sitting pretty at about 180mb.
Houston we have a problem.
I use Chrome also and mine is at 150mb which seems quiet normal.
Yeah it is, the problem is without the adblocker, it starts consuming memory until there is no more left. Like I posted, 2.5 gig of ram plus.
Also tried an another older computer I have running xp, same, starts at about 150 and rises until unusable.
Just checked and currently running at around 200mb, that's with the dirtyfreeloader on, will switch it off for a while and let you know result.
How exciting is this!!??
The forum is the hungry hungry hippo of the interwebs
Ok so in the time between this and my last post, ram usage climbed to over a gig on this page
Is it something to do with that Canberra Centre ad?
Ok, so dirtyfreeloader turned back on, no other changes ( 'cept I did get another beer ) and back down to 200 odd MB.
I logged in through a different than usual browser yesterday, and was surprised by the resultion of the rollover video content ads - something about the army I think?
That shit can chew up cache resources, unless it's self-removing, or otherwise shut down durung a browsing session.
lol probably constant beacons from all the malware sitting on your system
There is a jarrod croker ad?
If I was you I'd download some more RAM.
Clean as af**kin' whistle.
Yeah, but lucky for me you're not.
The figure I gave was without an add blocker.
Yeah, I know.
Tried the same on my gaming PC, left it sit there idling for a couple of hours logged in, only counted up to about 220MB and hung around there. ( no add blocker )
It's strange, because it's only this site that displays the issue on my laptop, and the add blocker fixes it. As I said, it's a clean install of w10, and chrome, settings are all default except I turn off everything that sends anything to third parties. ( my gaming pc has the same settings ) I've run full scans of malwarebytes adware and defender, got nothing at all.
Depends on the ad? ... laptop might be getting different ads cos it hasnt tracked your browsing habits yet??? ... just a total guess
The Forum seems to have some bugs in it at the moment. Mine is not working properly.
