Before I was using a 28.8K connection (US West caps speeds at 28.8K regardless of modem speed). When I look at new photos, it would take between 2 and 3 minutes for each page of 15 photos to load. Now I can load the page quicker than it takes for me to scroll down to the bottom.
I went to the advance photo search and entered my name and set the display for 100 photos at a time. The page loaded in about 8 seconds!
This photo took about 2.5 seconds to fully open:

What's my point to all of this? My visits to Airliners.Net are going to be a dramatically better experience now. Usually if there were more than 200 photos added, I would only look at the first 60 to 75 because it would just take too long. Now I can look at 500 new photos in less than 5 minutes. There's a lot of catching up I have to do on this site!
I haven't uploaded photos yet, but I should be able to spend minutes doing it instead of hours.
