I am so tired of having slow loading times because of other people’s crappy servers that I will spend some time this afternoon copying any images that are supposed to be hosted remotely to my server and host them here, with just the link to the other site, and then remove some of the items that are holding things up at load time. Some of the code I have to keep unfortunately, but it still should help out.

I can keep several of the items such as my blogroll on a separate page and then have them load via a lightbox so that you never leave the page. That should help things out a little bit anyway.
