Hmm… There’s no place to mention anything, I guess. All I see is your site link.

Re: The 512 Club

Is there another reputable place to test page weight that is not a goog product?

+1 for Pingdom Tools (though watch out, they were bought by SolarWinds a while back and I’m not sure how quickly SW will need to raise some money given recent events). And don’t forget browser inspectors, they’re handy.

Re: The 512 Club

#100DaysToOffload is another project from the same person, Kev Quirk. This one is to inspire people to write more. The NaNo WriMo for bloggers, I guess, except you get a full year.

Quirk and these two sites are listed in the 512 list. Maybe there’s even one or two more of his tucked in there. He knows how to market himself, but it does seem to offer positive benefits to web culture that harken back to the good ol’ days of 1997. Here’s his Masto, the only socmed account he has, I think. He works in infosec.

Back to The Club… the last entry, blue section, is a Txp site, ebass.uk. A woodworker who makes base guitars and uses Txp. 👍

Re: The 512 Club

There are lots of good sites on 512kb.club, I haven’t seen a dodgy one yet. Most are techie and so Textpattern would not be out of place. Is it a bad SEO neighbourhood in some way? I don’t know, I don’t think so, but I am still learning.

Yes, watch out

Re: The 512 Club

Run with FF on macOS:

Pingdom GT Metrix
Test server location Frankfurt Vancouver B.C
Load time (s) 0.33 1.6
Total measured weight (KB) 120.4 115
Fonts weight (KB) 76.4 73.8
Delta 44 41.2

Seems I can get the green ticket if I drop my fonts… But, I actually like my fonts. ;)

I notice Tor browser (my end-user choice) doesn’t recognize the fonts anyway. Maybe I should run the test again using Tor.

In both cases I get an ‘A’ grade, with some suggestions between them:

I wasn’t aware of the new image formats, and I just now notice Pixelmator (what I’ve used for a long time) has an export option for that tucked away in the ‘More…’ closet that I never looked in before.

Re: The 512 Club

WebP is still not universally supported, the issue being Safari which only recently gained support (and then only in latest macOS releases). Creating fallbacks is annoying and time consuming.

There are tools to convert JPEG to WebP server-side depending on users browser but I haven’t used those for a few years – so can’t vouch for them or recommend them personally.

Re: The 512 Club

caniuse.com/webp

WebP with a fallback to PNG or JPG is used increasingly these days.

You can easily and losslessly save 17KB on ladder.png if you run it through ImageOptim (or similar), or let me know the best email address for you and I’ll email it over.

(And yes, for anyone asking, I did run the ImageOptim GUI screenshot through ImageOptim.)
