    Took me about 1m 45s to load the first page and I'm connecting at 49.2 Kbps.

    A little long. You might want to offer a low bandwidth version of the site or try reducing the color depth of the images to 256 to reduce the file size.

    Site looks cool, though.

    It's not too slow for ADSL-sites. It took 2 secs. for me.
    Very nice site, Felix!
