I’ve a situation that is growing worse by the month. There is a leak that leaves me unable to use the net far sooner each month than I would prefer. That is why I seldom post anymore…ever tried to intertalk using dialup? Slooooooooooow. And I’m Southern, I speak kinda slowly anyways.
Our only source of half-fast internet is satellite internet. It is expensive, not really that fast, and subject to weather related outage even when the weather is not really so bad. Okay, that seems to be the nature of the beast and it is better than dialup. But not great.
One huge leak is the growing proliferation of autoplay video. It seems that virtually everyone embeds autoplay, even when they are simply saying what the text already says. I guess that literacy is not as common as I might wish. Video is a huge band-suck, and if I knew how to disable autoplay I believe that, once again, I would be able to participate all month long (yeah, I know. Some consider that more a feature than bug).
It’s to the point that I no longer even attempt to click on any PJmedia post. Those folks load so slowly that it’s just seldom worth the hassle. Too bad, ‘cause I miss Mr. Hanson’s stuff. There are other sites like that, and as more and more places ‘improve’ their websites the situation worsens.
So, anyone know how to disable autoplay? You boys have been helpful in every previous webnerd inquiry, and I hope that you can help here.
Now I’m going to bitch. I fervently wish that the advertising bots would realize that, once I’ve made an online purchase, I’m done. You can quit sending me info about wristwatches, I bought one. Don’t show me any other mattresses, I bought one (ask me how it was shipped, dayum I didn’t know you could do that). I bought a set of ATV tires, it’ll take years to wear them out, so leave me alone. I could continue, but I bet you know exactly what I’m talking about. You’re not really benefiting anyone by the deluge, so far as I see.
