I have a penchant for crashing applications but on this occasion I checked with my Twitter friends and sure enough, Slideshare is failing to load or is, at best, s-l-o-w.
On the other hand, I am pleased to report that Twitter is behaving rather well. For a change. :) That will please my friend David Terrar who just Tweeted to say he visited a prospect that has a couple of restaurants. They use Twitter for staff communications. Brave edglings.
