I can't download either of these sites in full, whatever my speed. They're both very big with a lot of images. Before I contact the people who run them, I would appreciate if people could compare their experience:

Wowie quite freaky sites... i seem to be getting 70-100kb/s ( a lit less than 1Mbps)throughput when opening these pages. I should say not too bad!!

First site loaded in about a minute in the office, around 4.5MB of images, on my home connection took a bit longer, around 2 minutes.

Second page a bit smaller, 3.7MB and downloaded in 40 seconds in the office and about a minute at home.

Both pages though did have images missing, although different images at home to the office. For example, the office the "Alex J Tavares" image loaded fine at home I got a google error:

Refreshing at the office does the same, but using a local proxy server at home the rest of the images load fine, so I'm pretty certain it's the site.

Do you think they're failing to load some images because it's just too much to swallow, as it were?
