Audiogon Is Noisy

I use my 5 year old cheapo PC (DELL Optiplex 790), that I picked up from the trash heap and fixed, to stream ROON to my DAC. Now my streaming sounds pretty amazing because I use a Sonore microRendu. This eliminates the noise in my computer from getting to my DAC. I still have the Ethernet network noise getting into the DAC but that is not that much. For, another $1K I will upgrade to the "OpticalRendu LITE for ROON Only" and that noise goes away too (for the most part).

So I thought I should be in good shape once I get the opticalRendu. However, recently this audio office computer with ROON was starting to have CPU usage that averages 45%. At this rate of CPU usage, my computer fans come on and my machine is no longer silent. A real bummer for audio. So I am thinking I need a new more powerful processor for my mostly audio only PC. Normally my CPU usage is around 10%. I also do some remote desktop via this machine but that hardly uses any CPU.

Well after a bit of testing today I find out it is AUDIOGON.COM that is making all the noise on my computer. With my browser opened up to A’gon the site’s advertisement JavaScript (likely written by monkeys) is jacking up the CPU. I killed the browser running A’gon and CPU is back to my beautiful 10% range and silence again.

So the moral of the story is don’t keep a browser open to A’gon while streaming.
Yes, that is true so I have know which sites can be opened without causing CPU hiccups on my audio PC. Audiogon hogging the CPU is a new thing I am seeing. Likely some random ad from the advert platforms. Though I could be in the Audiogon website code it self.

Whatever, the case I am killing the A'gon browser from hanging around while I stream. I should just do what I am doing now as I type this. I have the browser open to A'gon on a remote desktop connection from the audio PC. 
’adblock plus’ (MUST be adblock plus!, not ’adblock’) and ’privacy badger’ as programs on the PC, running in the backdrop.

Never rises above 2-4% CPU usage. Mostly at 2%.

the rest of you should continue to suffer adverts and the like, so that I can be ignored as I’m in the I sail through the interweb-verse, with nary a care, interruption, spying, being chewed on by parasites, eaten alive, or contributing to the insanity of that end of the world...

So, forget I ever told you how to be free of all that crap, and go back to sleep....

Cuz..when, or if... more of you get wise and jump up to being on this bus, then they’ll (all advertisers, etc) find a way, with their need for the billions in revenue.. to defeat the things that work for me right now, and I’ll end up all messed up and infested with the psycho crap of cookies, parasites and so on.

Between the two, right now, on this audiogon website, in the edit window...adblock plus (ABP) is blocking 11 adverts, and ’privacy badger’ is rejecting 20 cookies and hangers-on. And another program is blocking a facebook app that tries to collect data on me as well.

You’ll be surprised how many websites become ’broken’ as they count on your data to survive or make money.
About 90% plus of all news websites will not load, or they will tell you that you are blocked from using them, IF you have these software packages running on your PC.

It shows you how insane things really are and how much they’ve got their self serving unethical hands in your world and in your life.
