Yep! Slower but at least it works well enough to see if you might have issues. It shows page load time for the current page you are on when you open it.

Two great icon packs here everyone, grab them if you haven't already!
 
I apologize for the slow pace of updates to my two most prominent icon packs, and I almost never mention things from my personal life, but I've had several family crises this month (including multiple ER visits) and the record heat these past two weeks has slowed me down.

I hope to be back in the saddle in August, including (hopefully) releasing a pair of new packs centered on the two dueling AI overlords from Person of Interest. Also, a long-term goal of mine is to make Substratum and CMTE themes to match my HueI series 😋

Until then, if you haven't already procured the first two from the HueI series, please feel free to do so from the links below:

Three Summer-themed icon packs can evoke some of the more pleasant aspects of the season even in the midst of a record heat wave.

Great local pizza place. For down here in NC, the pizza's not half-bad. I'm from NY so nothing compares anymore. :-) But for NC pizza, this place is great!!!
