Several weeks ago I took the plunge and went with Virtual Spinbox. Although I like a lot of the features of the service, lately I have had some issues. Particularly I find that on many occasions, the banner is slow to download or does not download at all. This is highly irritating to me especially when I'm paying $150/month for this service.

I went with Spinbox based on recommendations here and elsewhere. I researched this decision for many weeks and now I feel like I've made a mistake. And I'm not the only one having problems. Right now if I go out to the Sitepoint main page I see four big red x's where the Sitepoint banners should be.

If anyone can offer me any advice or a word of encouragement I would greatly appreciate it right about now.
