now that I'm in EU (AT) would love to find some interesting events to go to!

but please ijnclude a warning when links go to sites including javascript from google or other third party stuff that totally destroys the user experience by locking up the browser for several minutes!

the laptop I'm travelling with only has 1GB ram - and that would no doubt be pretty common.

this laptop should be more than enough for browsing.. any site needing more without first asking the user whether its ok to load it is either ridiculously bloated and broken or downright malicious!

the latter is how it will seem to users whether or not it actually is that when they are left there unable to even move the mouse pointer for over a MINUTE.

so please - a bit more sanity re third party javascript!!!!
