I realised that you were the administrator, but I thought it was a private
page of yours, e.g. a portal.
What's the URL? Are you sure you can't combine the (/some of the) images to
make larger 'chunks'? If your page contains 300+ elements (essentially hits
too), no wonder it takes a long time to long. Can you imagine the mess this
inflicts upon cache? And the size of the log on the Web server?
