Slide.com Bar Issue

If you picked up the slide.com bar I mentioned the other day, I recommend you don’t create any high-traffic channels. I subscribed to the Flickr Central RSS feed on Wednesday, and spent the last two days wondering why my connection was so slow. Turned out Slide was permanently downloading. I like the idea of the bar, but it gets boring if you don’t have a good supply of new images – a bandwidth limiting option would be a good addition, I think. I’ve emailed the suggestion to them, and will let you know if I get anything back.
