Glad to hear it. Feel free to post a link on the wiki to your site as well.

It isn't how long the app takes to generate the page. The main page comes up in about three seconds for me. I'm on ethernet, so obviously networking issues could be at fault. Or the port/firewall issue.

I happen to be one of those people who can't get to port :8080 ;-) The server is running three separate web servers. One is on :80, one is on :8000, and the wiki is :8080.

If all goes well, I'll move the wiki to its own machine tonight. That should allow putting it on port 80. At the same time, I'll try loading the data files onto a ram disk, which should improve performance.
