| The reason why our artist pages are rather slow is because
every one of them basically is a mini portal, that includes about 85 search-engines.
Although they appear small - that is their actual size on your screen
- the entire contents is hiding behind the coding of the menus. (their
actual size is about 40kb. for those interested) (By the way, if you see
any frame scroll bars on your screen, please consult our help messageboard
to adjust your browser's settings.)
The concept of this website is basically to provide you with what is called a 'vertical portal', a portal built around one single artist in this case. You can of course browse at random through our artist list, but that's not what we set out to do. In that case you really will feel how slow the pages are loading. The concept is built around people arriving here and going directly to the page of their favorite artist in which case they'd only have to wait for one single artist page to load.
We are looking into using active server pages in a next version but for now this will have to do.
If you're looking for a faster way to check your email, consult our help message board for several ways how to do that.
you the bang, leaving you the buck !
