I figured I show you detailed screen shots of how slow this site is, using this tool.

As you can see from the chart below, this site is slower than 86% of the other sites on the Internet. The chart does slow slight improvement, but clearly, I need to clean things up here - quick.

Figured I slam my own site over someone elses - why not.
