Flash pages running slow...

Hello all-
I have a webpage made in flash and it is running extremely slow. It has always been slow but never this slow. Any advice would be great. Here is the site: www.simplyasquared.com

What do you consider "slow"? I thought it was pretty quick. But I have a quad processor Mac Pro. What system and OS do you have? What version of the Flash player? How much memory? What else is running on your system? Which browser are you using?

Alec,

I'm running a Macbook 2 GHz with 2 gig of RAM, Leopard OS running Safari.

Your website seems pretty fast here too.

If you’re not completely appalled, you’re not paying attention.

I agree with Jack. I looked at the site on my Dell laptop, 1.5 Ghz with 2 GB RAM over our wireless network and it ran fine with the latest Firefox browser.

I agree with everyone else. I'm running a PowerBook G4, 133Ghz, with only 1GB of RAM. Seemed to load fast on my end (3-4 seconds), in spite of the fact that it looked like it was loading 3-4 Flash files on the pre-load. And, I had a handful of programs running at the same time (Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver, Acrobat Pro, and about 3-4 others).

Don't know how fast is fast enough, but it loaded pretty quick on my old 2002 desktop, OS 10.4.11, G4.

Another post about Firefox running slow is current on this BB. Brings to mind comments some time ago that if you have lots of stuff on your desktop, it tends to slow down performance.

I'm as guilty as anyone, but when the drag is noticeable, I dump everything temporarily into one desktop folder & it helps.

Hope you don't mind some other comments on the site. (Maybe you're not finished with it yet.)

On the Example Work page I clicked "Main Page" thinking it would return to the home page. It just refreshed the same page it was on.

Also, Whenever I selected the "Home page" or went to it with the "back" arrow of the browser, the Flash content had to go through the reloading process again, even though it had loaded previously. Loaded faster, but still had to wait that little bit.
