It seems to load pretty fast for me.
About Fantastico, you can avoid receiving emails by removing a file in the .fantasticodata folder found in the homedir, but keep in mind this will trick Fantastico into thinking the script is not installed anymore so future upgrades should be done by yourself.
using your ftp client or you control panel file manager find the folder /.fantasticodata.
Inside .fantasticodata you will find sub folders with the name of the scripts you installed, in this case wordpress, inside the script folder you should see a file like yourdomain.tld|installfolder. Delete this file (you can save a backup copy just in case) and from now on Fantastico doesn't know about the installation of wordpress and will not send any notification.
