hi Atte

i'm pretty sure it's the singleton it dynamically creates stuff onload.

i hacked together a ssssad (slim super simple state saving system)
uhm what was the a and the d in the abbreviation for?

Atte would you mind and test my version?
please test for functionality and loading time. i might have overseen 

good luck


(i removed the singleton and included persistence)
