    My two year-old MacBook Pro keeps choking on this website. It doesn't seem to happen anywhere else, just here. Is it just the ads? If I ignore the message long enough, sometimes Safari will simply shrug its virtual shoulders and toss me off.

    I'm an artist/illustrator. I haven't understood how anything worked since they took away my capillary-channel dip pens.

    It’s been crashing my computer a lot lately too.

    But that computer is using Chrome and Windows 10.

    Nice.

    The examples given didn't match my options entirely (no 'details' icon) so I had to disable power saver altogether, rather than just for this page. I guess I'll just wait and see if that becomes a problem down the road.

    Thanks!

    As someone that does not see ads (Premium Member), I have not encountered this issue so I'm guessing it is related to ad serving.

    as @dbrauneis suggests, it's probably the ad sever. So it probably won't go away until you break that relationship: do premium member, live with it, etc. Remember to keep charger near by and it won't matter much. As for your tools, learning the hand drawing and pens paid off but you weren't that good for a while. Now you own one of the most powerful graphical tool kits ever at your finger tips,

    I use Windows 10 on Chrome on a laptop that is 7-8 years old and I have no issues. (I'm usually plugged in.) I'm also a Premium member and it has been great to not have ads bugging me during my BA experience. It's well worth $20 per year, plus there are a few other site benefits that can come in handy.

    Nope. I disabled it last night, got the message again this morning and Safari booted me off (although it then brought me right back again).

    Same. It's annoying AF.

    Not meant to be a plug but rather trying to isolate the issue for the user (to the ad serving portion of the site - I had seen messages similar to that before I was a Premium Member).

    Crashing the computer or hanging up the browser???

    And there was the guy who complained about getting porn site ads here. Watching these targeted ads is a hoot and very instructive. I trust the internet like I trust a copperhead.

    Yep, both predictable and dangerous.

    Sorry, I used the term "crashing my computer". It's never crashed my computer.

    My computer will be audibly working harder, and the site will slow. Then if I try to reply in a thread, it starts slowing down to the point I can barely type, then the page just stops and I get that "Aw, snap!" pop-up.

    I then have to go back and open up the site again. Good thing is, it saves my reply.

    This happened a lot in that recent Trillium thread. I'm not sure if it was simply because of how big the thread was.

    Maybe try clearing browser cache. Minor incovenience may fix.

    I emptied my cache yesterday and it hasn't helped. I'm getting the 'significant memory' message every time I open a page on this site now.

    The glass-half-full side is that I have to type more quickly and concisely to get my reply posted before Safari closes the page (my typing hasn't been saved). So there's that.

    I have to say that it runs smooth as silk for me. No issues ever. But I am also a premium member....

    No details. While back, with a fully loaded new model PowerBook I spent a lot of time with a Apple Tech support (free of course).

    I think there’s a solution to your problem but if won’t be solved by amateur on line tech support. If there’s an Apple store near you take it in and ask at the Genius Bar for help. Be prepared if asked to pay a fee and then get 2x or 3x your moneys worth by asking questions dumb or not so that you understand what and why and how. May be a bit of time invested that could be good long term investment. Sometimes repeated over stress shortens useful life.

    Thanks, but it's ONLY BeerAdvocate that causes the problem and, come to think of it, maybe only the forums - I'm not sure about that. A less expensive, more expeditious solution would probably be to spend more time working and less time fucking around on here.

    My power drain was only with a few sites and pieces of software and none of my colleagues with similar installations had the problem had the problem.

    OS was new version at Xo. The problem got reduced by tech support and magically disappeared with the release and installation of X.1

    With all those different internal os thingees and your additional installation add one, virtually no way something won’t slip through the cracks un caught.

    Good luck.
