Just a quick note and heads up, if anything is amiss here:
I’ve been really messing around with some configuration settings on cherny.com lately, mainly testing some performance tweaks for another project, and well, this site pays the price.
So if anything’s horked, yeah, I broke it and hope to be back at this soon to fix it.
Main thing I’m curious about is if any actual visitors to the site have browsers which choke on the server-side compression I’ve been toying with on the CSS and JS files. Please comment if you do.
I’m anticipating NS4 having some issues, but I don’t think I have a lot of those visitors.
I had combined all the CSS files, but interestingly enough, the printer CSS, embedded in the main CSS file with an “@media print” statement immediately choked IE5. Not that (a) I’m certain I did that right or (b) that I even have a large IE5 audience.
And, this is pure server-side compression, the CSS files and JS files could have all the white space squeezed out as well, but I’ve done that, and this was a test of something new.
Please drop me a comment if the site blows up for you, I’ll be revisiting this at some point and plan on tweaking it more. Hey, on the up side, on crappy dial-up the site should load in a blazing 16 seconds or so. Wow. Heh. C’mon people.
