    Anyone else got this problem? It takes abouta minute for each page to load up after clicking a link, and it seems to have started since the new site layout. :angry:

    I don't know if it me (I live in the middle of nowhere) or if the site is getting busier after the cool changes. Either way, I want my performance back. :glare:

    We (me and Dr.Pepper at least) are aware of it, it's not related to the theme.

    It took me about 45 seconds to get onto this page.

    It took me about 5 seconds :D
    So no, I don't think it's the new theme.

    What browsers are you using?

    I'm using Chrome 6 and this page loaded in 1.2 seconds.

    Sounds like a DNS problem. I know I had to switch from my ISPs DNS to OpenDNS in order to get on the site. :X

    no. dns changes were made though, but should not affect anyone as they were not propagating.

    the slowness should be old news, the culprit was a slow ad server from an advertiser.

    Perhaps, but it's still a pretty standard res for netbooks (and the iPad, but that just resizes the whole page to fit anyway).
