Flashkit is excellent but also INSANELY SLOW, where I am (europe), you have 2 unavailables in your traceroute, maybe fixing these will be enough to rectify the problem, otherwise mirrors, lots of mirrors, like tucows !

I should say that http://www.flashkit.com definitely, without a doubt has the the slowest loading pages I have ever visited ! (I am NOT exaggerating !)

Please explain the problem, if anyone knows it's cause ?!

European user :)

ps. Im on a 100MBit fiberoptic directly to the scandinavian (swip.net/ sprintlink.net) backbode, so it's definitely not a local problem !

congratulations you've stumbled on the most frequently asked question on flashkit.
the lack of speed is caused by the 120000 members of flashkit and the constant stress on the servers. they dish out many gigabytes of data a day.
