Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Thanks for the update. Do any of the members being impacted have firebug/yslow/pagespeed/etc installed? This will help pinpoint exactly what is causing the delay. The "waiting for ..." status bar message is notoriously inaccurate.
I've been experiencing the same issue, slow loading pages with "Waiting for lqo-thequestionsnetw.netdna-ssl.com". This started on Tuesday for me regardless of the browser on my desktop PC. I ruled out recent Slackware64-current OS updates when I was able to replicate the slowness using an older Slackware-14.0 VM. Also, after rebooting my smartphone, I get the same slowness on WiFi but not on mobile data. That makes me think it's a DNS issue.
IMHO since the site has made no changes and the issue is sporadic depending on point of access it is highly probable that something is not right with the site's DNS records.
