It was taking far too long to load.
While I was at it, I killed niftyCorners and the Snap Preview Anywhere Plugin. I'm confident that both of these loaded quickly, but they nevertheless seemed extraneous (you don't miss the rounded corners THAT much, do you? Besides... the rounded edges were misplaced in some version of IE), and I'd rather have readers who aren't frustrated than a couple of "ooh, web 2.0 corners" semi-sarcastic comments. :-)
As a reader, how much do you care?
While I'm talking about site mods, I have to give mad props to the WordPress upgrade process. My 1.5.x to 2.x upgrade took me only about 40 minutes -- and 30 of that was just verifying that all of my plugins were still operational. I used the fantastico interface my hosting provider gives me to do it, which created a back up of everything as part of the upgrade script (which I verified before firing, and yes, it's clean).
