Making Alan’s blog less slow

I tried to find out what was causing Alan’s blog to take well over 3 minutes to load, and I found a few problems.

The biggest problem was his tag cloud generator from zoomclouds.com. It appears that their service is currently dead (it doesn’t ack my syn), so I set my local packet filter to reject connection attempt to their site, and that made it much better.
