I have NO idea how much, or how little flash you have on your site: But I have been waiting for it to load for about 20min now
and I'm on cable.

How big is your site? How big are the flash files?

 I can ping your site fine (around 80ms average) but something is taking to
long to load. I'm thinking it *might* be the flashes movies, but not sure.
This never has happened to me before with flash sites so I have no idea.

My suggestion is make an index page with plain text, and then have a link
going to the flash pages, and another link going to a different page. I just
want to see if I'm able to even go to your site. It *migh* be my crappy
attbi dns servers tho.

Good Luck!
