I'm totally in agreement about the relative cost of spedning a bit of time being small compared to the benefit of faster loading /lower server load, less bandwidth usage etc.
When I get my hosting company to run some internal speed tests I get this:
•HTML: 23795Bytes 0.33Sec
•HTML Images: 15940Bytes 2.28Sec (11 objects)
•CSS Images: 0Bytes 0.00Sec
•Total Images: 15940Bytes 2.28Sec
My images are only 15KB but take 2.28 seconds to load?! How can this be? Am I doing something drastically wrong here?
I'm kind of beating my head against a brick wall - I may well be over looking something ridiculous, any input would be appreciated
Looking into the traceroute - my audience is all UK based.. add another 2.5 seconds roughly for each page load due to all the routing within the states.. ouch!
