Technorati got some serious latency problems right now

I used to have a “view blog reactions” widget from Technorati in the single.php and index.php of my template, today I just noticed my blog is loading REALLY slowly, after 5 minutes of investigation I narrowed it down to this Technorati script:

<script src="http://embed.technorati.com/linkcount" type="text/javascript"></script>
<a href="http://technorati.com/search/<?php the_permalink(); ?>" rel="linkcount">
  View blog reactions
</a>

I commented that out for now, their site is loading ridiculously slowly over here with my EVDO connection as well…

    Sorry about the difficulties, we had a serious network outage today, we’re bringing our systems back online now. There was an unprecedented failure with our network equipment (redundant equipment to boot) that we’re shaking out. We should be 100% very soon and we’ll be posting to the Technorati Blog about this soon.
    thanks,
    -Ian

    Thanks for the comment Ian, it seems to be better now so I’ve uncommented the Technorati script…
