Ugh... then that can be make a difference, I mean, the low amount of ram 
and low-range CPU. My main computer is a core2 quad with 8 GiB of ram so 
that site was having no significantly effect on my system but can indeed 
slow things down if your system is busy or has put the available 
resources into VB or another KDE services :-)

you experience a difference with it :-?
