A suggestion...

I didn't see your whole page, because your counter's server was
apparently busy. I saw your background, but then all I got was
"contacting" and I gave up after a minute or so (on a
T1 connection). I would, however, view enough of your source too see
that your counter was close to the top of your page. I *think* that if
you put your counter at the bottom of the page, the text will load
before the browser goes off to siteflow looking for the counter. If I'm
right, this would prevent your page from loading so slowly when the
counter is busy. I'm sure somebody will set me straight if this is not
the case.

I hope not! :-)
