waiting for c11.statcounter.com
transferring data from c11.statcounter.com
transferrring data from m1.2mdn.net
waiting for images.avs.com
connecting to google.analytics.com
. . . . .
transferring data from avsads.com
And there were some others that i didn't log . . . . .
The problem did go away around Jan 8th, but for several days it was a constant problem and that's when i noted the offending messages in my progress bar. Maybe this will help you determine exactly what caused the slowdown during that time. It's been fine for the past month though.
