the way of all music

The All Music Guide has been my favourite portal for popular music album and performer information. In the last couple of days, they just had a rhytidectomy, and now things are really in the pits. Why "really"? Well, they served their content off a Win2K IIS server to begin with. And now, the pages load up so slowly (and the searches crawl like dying snails!). When I hit the pages with Mozilla, I get a peek at the new interface with a badly placed notification (as if the misaligned images weren't a dead giveaway) that my browser wasn't supported and that the site had been optimized for Internet Explorer 5.5 and above on Windows. So I opened an Internet Explorer window, pointed the browser to the portal and what do I get? We apologize for the temporary connection delay.

. Sweet.
