This is where my ignorance comes into play: Are the "slow loading" times due to Flash itself, or is it still the content?
I hate to be a pest, but does anyone know the answer to this? My employee told me that she tried the site at home last night and it was VERY slow.... to the point of not wanting to wait for galleries to load and the video clips wouldn't play.
For those of you that say the site was slow... are you saying it could be a bit snappier... or it was really almost/definitely unacceptably slow?
When we've done these "speed tests" here, I never seem to have impressive numbers so I thought my cable connection was slower than most...not to mention those sites only put me in the middle on a good day.
But I've knocked the photo file sizes down about as low as I can, and I'm now wondering if it's Flash itself slowing things down, and whether or not those load times are unacceptable or not(?)
