Well, at 1:38pm we had 2077 users and MBWorld had 988 online. That may have something to do with it.

Also, depending on how you have your system tuned up for ads, that would make a difference. Firefox with Adblocker certainly speeds things up.

Same here, I am doing much better with Firefox / ad blocker.

I'm telling you that I block ads at my firewall, by domain name. I have a 12 Mbps fractional DS3 feeding me. It loads quickly, but it far and away the LARGEST consumer of bandwidth of any site visited on my 1000+ node network. And I'm the only one hitting it.
