Sorry to all of you, I have to apologize for that inconveniences;
unfortunately the server's speed actually has become atrociously slow since about two weeks now (though before it has been quite reasonable).
I have talked and emailed several times to my webspace provider's hotline ("Dynacom" from Frankfurt, Germany), but all they can say is "We are aware of that, but we don't know why and we don't know what to do against it" !!!!
Shame on them!!!!!!!!! Meanwhile I'm getting upset about their ignorance, and as soon as I have contracted with another (hopefully better) provider, I'll give 'em a kick!!!!

Of course I'll do (if things really don't get better)!
Any provider-recommendations (and sample-pages for speed-testing) are kindly welcomed!
