    I just checked your site using Chrome 19, Firefox and IE9 and it loads in in about 6 seconds for me, and starts animating.

    I am not sure you will be able to get much faster responses from that as from what I have seen in the plugin it has to preload all of your images (6 of them it seems on your site) and then display them. So loading 6 images, even small ones like yours (at about 500KB in total) is still half a megabyte to load, which will generally take a few seconds by itself anyway.

    If you are getting different results try refreshing from the Cache (Control F5 in chrome, or delete cache in Internet Explorer)

    I know sometimes when I used this plugin and modified a lot of things it would someones act weird, but overall it works for my sites.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks man, but the issue is that am trying to accomodate even visitors with a slow internet connection. Is there any caching plugin you can reccomend?? I tried out the W3 Total cache but it converts into static Html therefore messing up the whole show.
    Is it there a way i can stop the site from always querrying from the DB(caching the DB) somehow??? would it buy me a few more seconds??
