Fix to Linkedin problem?

Alleluia !!
I finally found a fix to this very annoying problem with Linkedin (that Linkedin never solved by themselves ): Linkedin becomes so slow that pages never load (it seems that hundreds of people have this problem: link 1, link 2, etc..)
Linkedin must hide a tremendous amount of "technical expertise" for being the only website causing "internet protocol side effects" or whatever... Please note that this problem started in 2008.

The solution that worked for me is setting the MTU value to 1360 as described here.(dated 2010 feb.08) How to change the MTU value on window is explained here (I'm on WinXP).

But I'll keep an eye on it, because in the past many "solutions" seemed ok but lapsed only few hours.
Thank you, linkedin ....

Goswf version 0.94

GOSWF now allow to pass directly SGF data in replacement of the sgf URL.

Example of HTML code:
<EMBED
src="http://YOUR_SITE/goswf.swf"
flashvars="url=(;GM[1]AW[bb][cb][cc][cd][de][df][cg][ch][dh][ai][bi][ci]AB[ba][ab][ac][bc][bd][be][cf][bg][bh](;B[af];W[ah](;B[ce];W[ag] C[only one eye this way])(;B[ag];W[ce]))(;B[ah];W[af](;B[ae];W[bf];B[ag];W[bf](;B[af];W[ce]C[oops! you can't take this stone])(;B[ce];W[af];B[bg] C[RIGHT black plays under the stones and lives]))(;B[bf];W[ae]))(;B[ae];W[ag]))"
height="600" width="440"
pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" ></EMBED>

The result is show here:


(note: this is a problem, then possible moves in variation are not shown. Right-click + "show variations" to see variations)
Check goswf homepage for more info.

[EDIT 2010/02/12]: it seems that it doesn't work on IE if the file goswf.swf is located on a google site. Therefore it seems better to host this file on your own site. It's strange, because Koji's method of Koji uses a google site and it works fine on IE. I need to investigate this further.
