Technorati got some serious latency problems right now

I used to have a “view blog reactions” widget from Technorati in the single.php and index.php of my template, today I just noticed my blog is loading REALLY slowly, after 5 minutes of investigation I narrowed it down to this Technorati script:

<script src="http://embed.technorati.com/linkcount" type="text/javascript"></script>
<a href="http://technorati.com/search/<?php the_permalink(); ?>" rel="linkcount">
  View blog reactions
</a>

I commented that out for now, their site is loading ridiculously slowly over here with my EVDO connection as well…
