    While you’re doing maintenance could you at some point have a look at the includes? The page takes between 17 and 40 seconds to load for me on the PC and is barely usable on my Iphone 3.

    Some notes:

    http://i0.wp.com/www.outsidethebeltway.com/wp-includes/images/blank.gif is missing and takes up about 13 seconds (reduced by multithreading) of unnecessary calls just for the “nothing here” !

    https://www.outsidethebeltway.com/wp-content/themes/otb2011/images/footer-top.png is missing too

    – Loads of calls to URLs that does no longer seem to exist (csi.gstatic.com; b.scorecardresearch.com; l.sharethis.com).

    – I realize this is due to the ads but 32 different javascript calls per page o.O. Holy cow.
