I hope that suit is stainless. Rusty nuts could be a problem.

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(?)

At work, with 150Mb/s up and 150Mb/s down link (OC-3 optical to our facilities measured at 89Mb/s up/down at my computer using speed tests), it takes 11 seconds while seeing "loading galeries". That sounds like a lot to me.

It's down to 5 seconds on additional attempts until I close all instances of IExplorer and start again.

I tested from work using Firefox. From when I hit enter in the address bar to when the photos showed up took 12 seconds.

The first set of photos loaded pretty quickly, but the Other, Musicians I and II all seemed like they took awhile. I can tell why it does that, since it appears to be pre-caching all the pictures. So the longer the gallery, the longer it's going to take to get to ANY picture.

Also, I agree with Peter on the music and flash fronts. Obviously, you're not going to throw away all the work you've done on the flash site, so you can disregard that commentary. But websites that play music are an instant no-go for me. I just close the window. Very irritating.

Um... just realized I didn't say anything nice. I do like the layout of the site; it's very clean, and disregarding my distaste for flash, the galleries are pretty slick.
