Fast servers change

I've made some changes to when the fast servers are used. Before you had to be logged in, then anywhere you went was fast.

However, your username.livejournal.com domain was still slow to people visiting your journal. Now it's fast. So when you make links to your journal in other places, use your username.livejournal.com address, not /users/username/. The exception is friends pages... those aren't fast on username.livejournal.com URLs, unless you're logged in.

Also changed--- /login.bml is fast, so if slow servers are overloaded, jump right to www.livejournal.com/login.bml and login.

Oh, also --- customview.cgi is always fast now too, so if you embed your journals in your website, your webserver doesn't have to be "logged in".
