I'll tell you what's annoying, all this damn shockwave crap on the internet nowadays. Shockwave is only useful for designing low-bandwidth (compared to mpegs and others) animations like those comedy cartoons (which I don't really care about anyway). On an information web site, it's about as useful as a peep hole in a sliding glass door. What a waste of bandwidth. Many web sites have lost me as a user due to their shockwave. I can find other sites that give the same information without all the hassle.
