Lots of slow loading animation. If you can combine this withrepparttar 135636 requirement to download another obscure plug-in, you'll have hit a home run. I'm especially impressed byrepparttar 135637 many sites that have uppedrepparttar 135638 ante to include two splash pages before you ever get to evenrepparttar 135639 first word of content. Stunning!
