Hey everyone…

I’m in the process of taking over as the webmaster for our motorcycle club.

I’m finding my way around Dreamhost pretty well, but one of my pages is loading AGONIZINGLY slow…

I’m starting to get complaints from the brothers…

I read about Ruby on Rails and FastCGI…but that stuff sounds like greek to me!!!

I’m dyin here…

here’s the slow page if you want to take a look and levy suggestions…

There are some very large graphics on that page. Not large as in size on screen, but large as in file size. One of those white images was around 350KB, which is gigantic…you’ll want to resize them until they’re around 10-25KB each. Then the page will load faster for everyone.

yeah… the page doesn’t seem to be loading slow, however the images do.

kool…I’ll try that…
