YSlow? – That’s what I’d like to know!

So I stumbled upon a neat little plugin for the Firebug plugin I’ve been using with Firefox for awhile now. It’s called YSlow and what it does is analyze various aspects of your pageload and compares it to Yahoo’s Exceptional Performance criteria and gives each aspect a letter grade rating. Nerd Culture was an F yesterday–Now it’s averaging between D to B for me, depending on the page. I reduced the total page load of the homepage from 784 KB to 345 KB, less than half what it was before! Even better; Primed Cache was reduced from 440 KB to 18 KB! Why was my server set up so that the users would download images they already have in their browser’s cache? >.>

Apologies for the downtime.

I broked mah Wurdprezz.
