Sorry about that. :(  Yes, I know the page is heavy in its present state.
Actually, thanks for the reminder. I'll work on it tonight.

It's not mine. It's Rockliffe's. I have never played with animated gifs. I
hate them like the plague, so I don't build them ... But alas, I'm stuck
with that one for a while. I just thought I was going crazy. I feel better
knowing I'm not alone in having a speed discrepancy.
