One minute's pretty extreme to render a page - do you know what kind
of load the system is under? (There have been cases when the system
takes a long time to respond to a change because it's taking a long
time to flush the cache - and cache flushing is on mental 'to be
fixed' list, but it doesn't usually take so long to render a page...
What sidebars are you using? Are many of them based on RSS feeds?

Ah, that was aimed more at the list in general than you in particular.
Typo doesn't have a page that shows all the installation info, and I'm
not quite sure what info really needs to go there... probably
something along the lines of Ruby version, RAILS_ENV, Caching state,
operating system, database, schema version, typo version and/or SVN
revision, list of plugins installed, a pretty printed representation
of blog.settings, List of sidebars. (All this needs to have any
passwords obscured, of course...)
