You could put this in your head element...

    <script type="text/javascript">
        document.write("<div id='hide' style='display:none'>");
            var hideDiv = document.getElementById("hide");
            hideDiv.removeNode ? hideDiv.removeNode() :
hideDiv.style.display = "";

It has the added bonus of filtering out impatient users too.  Think
how much you'll save on traffic!
