When loading my 'blog, I get a minute or two white screen before the site loads. I tracked this down to the latest release of Next-Gen Gallery. Looking at Safari's Activity Window, I saw this:
http://lite.piclens.com/current/piclens_optimized.js Timed Out
Seems like Next-Gen Gallery is calling on an external URL for internal functionality. Anyone know how to disable just this part of Next-Gen Gallery? When I disable the plugin completely, the 'blog loads lickety-split.
