This blog loads very, very slowly. (Sorry.) It's big, it's full of weird crap that I like to post because it's interesting, and sometimes things break because the weird crap is no longer supported.
If you want it to go faster look at this:
Steve Souders book High Performance Web Sites describes the 14 best practices he developed while working as the Chief Performance Yahoo!. YSlow, the Firebug extension he created, codified those best practices. Now working at Google, Steve discusses the next set of best practices he's discovered, including the impact of iframes and where to place (and where not to place) inline script blocks.
and it you want to understand why web sites that are faster are better, more profitable, and more helpful for users see Andy King's Web Site Optimization
Fast display speed is the key to success with your website. It increases profits, decreases costs, and improves customer satisfaction (not to mention search engine rankings, accessibility, and maintainability).
Here's Steve Souders talk at Google.
