Ah, it could be a case of the summer slowdown. 😉 My PC runs at a higher temperature on really hot days. When a PC is running hot, it is running slow. The servers on the other hand have a nice climate controled environment in the data center. 🙂

Is the temperature hot in Ireland this time of year?

Yes, moving any widgets or displays to the footer of the pages would indeed help. I think that in the future, the internet browser programmers will figure out a way to allow the entire page to load despite any javascript di-agreements. 🙂 Lucky for now, most widgets run ok most of the time.
