I have a question... a big question:
What can Cyburbians do to conserve bandwidth usage?
Here's a 'for instance':
In short posts, there's much whitespace between the text and the bottom of the post.
No doubt WAN- and/or other optimization techniques efficiently 'eliminate' it...
But would Cyburbia be charged less if I didn't use an avatar? (Much less whitespace.)
If so, I won't use one. (It's not that important to see a redhaired dog with reading glasses.)
Another 'for instance':
The smileys are hosted by Cyburbia; every time a smiley is used, Cyburbia is charged for bandwidth, no?
Should I start hosting my smileys with my (very reliable) Photobucket?
