This weekend, I'll be tweaking Universal Hub's templates to keep ads off pages for monthly subscribers - not just the ads themselves, but the calls to the UHub ad servers that would otherwise put all sorts of hidden stuff on pages. I've been testing out the code to make this happen, and, so far, it actually works (yes, I'm always amazed when that happens).
The result should be that pages come up faster for you, at least if you're a subscriber and logged in.
This weekend, I'll try to match up the e-mails I have for subscribers and activate this for you, but if you do subscribe, and have a moment, I'd be grateful for an e-mail message with your account name (I've never actually paired subscriber e-mail addresses with UHub accounts). Because it relies on you being logged in, I'm also going to (finally!) see if I can lengthen the time in which the system recognizes logins, so you don't have to re-log in as often as at present.
If you're not currently a subscriber, you can become one (scroll down for the "Monthly subscription" option).
If you are a subscriber, thank you!
