Slow Site Loading

As you may have noticed, the blogrolls on this site have a significant load delay... if they load at all.

Looks to me like the Blogrolling.com server migration didn't go quite as well as planned.

I've been noticing the same thing. The Blogs for Bush site uses blogrolling, and they've just dragged my site to a halt. I noticed these problems on my old site, and it finally drove me to building a mysql table and the mt-sql plugin to roll my own blogroll code. That's the problem when a page needs to load from an external site. The page only loads at the speed of the slowest site. It would be nice if blogrolling built a movable type plugin to load the blogroll during the building of a template. It would take a load off of their servers, and improve the performance of the blogs that use it. If they did that, I might even switch back.
