For a long time one of my favourite picture-blog sites www.icanhascheezburger.com (and all others in its network) had been upgrading their sites slowly to newer designs and technology. However ever since I connect to their new design (the 'beta') which they are now forcing us to do, my computer's Hard Disk Drive is accessed for at least 15 seconds straight and my computer slows down to the point where even the mouse cursor would not operate, then everything clears up and I connect to the site. This only happens on my first visit of turning the computer on, so it doesn't happen on subsequent visits. What's going on - how can I fix this? I'm pretty sure the site uses WordPress, though I don't know what their "new technology" is. I don't think any other site does this.
