I really haven't noticed any slow down. My work connection sucks big-time, so EVERYTHING is slow here. Home is a year old HP machine hooked to the slowest cable modem on the face of the planet (thanks to my provider not really caring about those of us to the north of them). Both seem to run all sites the same as they always have, including this one. Pics do take a bit to load, but again, I'm just used to that due to the ****** connection here at work.
