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".
