When I tried that, I experienced no delay. However I got this:
What is this page? / Opt Out
Sorry, We could not find www.foolcdn.com ...


FWIW, my own comments regarding g.foolcdn.com are restricted to what
appears to be its use to serve certain sub-components of fool.com pages.
It's not a web site in itself AFAIK, just a content server.
I think s.foolcdn.com serves style sheets, j.foolcdn.com serves javascript (as does h.foolcdn.com) and g.foolcdn serves graphics, etc.
e.g., http://g.foolcdn.com/art/foolboards/heartc.gif
Whatever infrastructure serves *.foolcdn.com is magnificently unreliable and badly designed.

When this site times out (as it does, all the time, from some locations)
the page won't load depending on what kind of component is needed.
The full web page framework itself comes from the main fool.com (or fool.co.uk etc) site.
