Could be your internet service provider. I believe problems have been found recently with particular ones.

Try reloading the page and disabling any ad blockers.

I found your problem.
liljim called BT, but they basically informed him that they couldn't do anything about it, as he isn't a BT customer and that their customers who're having problems should contact them themselves.

You will need to provide them with as much detail as possible. The (sub)domain that the flash is loaded from on newgrounds.com is:

uploads.ungrounded.net

So, phone them up and complain about it. Be persistent, you're paying for the service, and they aren't delivering.

Contact liljim if you have any other questions or problems.

What he said. Although, I'm not sure what good contacting me would do, given that I've already tried getting through to their technical department and I didn't really have the heart to yell at the girl I was speaking to as she spent 40 minutes on the phone to me going to and from her supervisors. I suspect that they were telling her a) they didn't know what to do about it and b) because I'm not a customer, it's beyond her remit to try and help me.

Like I said in the other threads about this, it's better if actual customers keep calling up and complaining. Maybe threaten to move services. I dunno.
