Site slowness

Posted by Michael Economy on January 8, 2009

We're terribly sorry!

Ilana I thought the internet might have gone out! We had a snow storm recently and lost all power. I'm so glad the connection didn'e go again!

rivka They're now saying it's fixed, but I'm still having problems. Ironically, it took forever for this page to load.
