    Well I just did some behind the scenes stuff today on our server, and using a certain apache module, I was able to compress pages and cut down bandwidth. What that means basically is that pages should load WAY faster now. I already notice a huge difference, for me anyway. On my T1 at work, stuff is loading almost immediately. Anyone else notice such a improvement?

    It's more like "Gee-zip" as in "Gee, that new compression sure zips!"

    Moving faster for me, too. Of course, my new DSL line doesn't hurt, either

    One of my main hangups about this place is resolved. I guess I have no excuse not to post more often...

    It loads MUCH, MUCH faster. It used to draaaagggg whenever I'd cruise around the site, especially the forums summary page (time to go fix a sandwich! [img]tongue.gif[/img] ), but now it loads up twice as fast. Good job, Brett! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
