Ah, so that's what slows down the menus! Mine are slow as hell, and I
wondered why. Didn't really want to move to SSD: I like how easy it
is to update with new versions of minimyth when I can just download
to the server. Any idea why use of NFS causes this problem? I thought
files got cached in memory.
