    There is a wealth of content providers that want us to include their content served from their machines on our pages (ie linkexchange, flycast, news sources, weather etc). The problem is that these services are nice as long as "their" site is spitting out the information quickly. When using these services in a table environment, if one service is slow at serving their content, it causes our page to stop and wait or slows your site to a crawl until it is loaded.
    Is their some script out there that can set a timer on the external content loading and skip it if it isn't fast enough, so that the rest of your page can be loaded?
    I am sure many people have been frustrated by this. I have spent countless hours tracing the code on my own site thinking something was broken, only to find out that my site had nothing to do with it. The inclusion of other sites data was causing my site to break.
    Thanks for any help,
