well you're off to a good start - properties can show you things inna hurry - here's a a page that takes 9100 bytes or mine takes just under 15,000 bytes so our websites are almost the same, you're always looking for a way to shrink memory and speed things up.. now it's a matter of how many bells & whistles you can cram in there. kountrylife takes like 51,000 bytes but a lot of it is stored in cookies so once it's loaded and your puter goes to its own files first, it'll zip a big page right open.
as fas as compressing pictures, there's more than 1 way to skin that cat too - i currently use this picture for wallpaper - not that crazy about tile so i just stretch whatever it is. darned if i know why, but whoever made this picture
got sneaky and packed it into 56,000 bytes, pretty manageable, by shaving the width only. so once it stretches to 800 pixels wide, it still looks great. in other words, the stock height of my house copy is already 640 pixels tall. so never say never. :)
