For what it might be worth, a new user came into the IRC channel
yesterday with a complaint:

Dec 23 09:47:59 Can I disable in some way the snow on the
scala-lang site ? It's killing my computer.

It does cause 100% utilization (of one core) on my system, too.

Hi All,

I just noticed this myself. It seems to not eat up much of my Mac's
CPU, and being in California, was a welcome, relaxing sight for me.

Not only this, but turning off JavaScript for the scala-lang.org
domain breaks the Scala API docs. Instead I had to manually block all
JS files loaded by the main site.

The offending file turned out to be
.
Not exactly obvious.

Re: It's snowing at
IE7 lets it snow with barely any CPU load - FF,Safari & Chrome eat 30%

Annoying to see a benchmark where IE scores best ;-)

Re: It's snowing at
FF on my Asus EEE happily doesn't render any snow, otherwise I'd probably have to kill FF.  And it'd be a shame to have to do that n+1 times per day instead of just n.

Maybe a bug in IE7? :)

Annoying global warming with my FF 3.0.5 too.
