Hi Eva, thanks for looking. It is not the graphics fault, that only adds about
12k to the whole thing. The problem is the host server I have chosen. The
complete SWF is only 55k with a 2k HTML page, I have ADSL and the whole thing
should load in about 1/2 of a second for me. However I see the preloader as
well for a second, and so has a cable modem user.
This is something that I hadn't counted on, finding slow servers out there,
it's a contingency that you can't really test for. You can spend all the time
in the world creating a great flash site, with cool preloaders, but if it sits
on a slow server you will lose you audience.
