As part of our ongoing commitment to incremental improvement (kaizen): Over the past 12-hours, we have doubled the speed of the website overall. We've gone to about 2.5 seconds load time from a starting place of about 6.5 seconds on first load and 5.5 seconds on second load. And that's with our CDN still down (we're in conversation with our Host to resolve that). So times will vary and we should be even faster once that issue is resolved.
Disclaimers: Of course speed/load time will vary based on your location and what else your browser has to contend with. Also, keep in mind, not every part of the site is affected. For example, we had to exclude some member pages and the forum. However, in general, you should have a faster experience.
