Is there any possiblity of changing the slideshow, I'm using IE7 on a Centrino 1.6ghz laptop and every few seconds the processor usage is jumping to 70-80%. Its not very battery friendly.

Why don't you just switch off displaying the pictures in your browser? Easier than finding another specialized site this good!

Alright, I've removed the script for the mini slideshow at the top.

Thanks.

Site is still pretty slow, maybe you should look into a faster webserver too (php scripts using a SQL database benefit from faster processors and more RAM).
Although, we shouldn't make complaints about a free service. ;)
