Is this loading right?

I have a question related to cashing of a webpage.
I dont rightly know if this page is loading properly or not,

I use a setimeout to prevent conflicts, so that all of it loads in order, but I only know for sure that this works on my machine, and a few others that I have tested.
Does anyone have problems with parts of the site not loading, and so, what parts?

Doesn't do anything if JavaScript is disabled.  Just sits there claiming to be loading a demo.  At minimum it should give me some indication of where I'm at, what it's about, and hint that JS should be enabled to see everything.

Not so sure a picture of a woman in lingerie as pseudo-ad is something I want to bring up at work either.

That picture is switchable by users under 'settings' so a visitor must have uploaded it and added it. You are dead right about it sending the wrong signals, and I'll change that.
It's also true I should add a notification that javascript needs to be enabled. Thanks.

I see the "Demo" button and a landing page now with JS disabled.  Clicking on Demo does take me to a page where things appear to load from the top down, which is nice.

Refreshing the page, though, takes me back to the landing page.
