For a while now the site seemed to be getting slower and slower to load. The main page was OK, but the individual pages were downright painful. Sometimes they even locked up all-together.
After a bit of playing around, I think I’ve narrowed down the problem. It appears to be the gravatars… you know, those little pictures next to your name when you leave a comment.
So, the gravatars are now gone, at least for time being. So long gravatars… I’ll miss you.
