Getting better... I started getting the site converted to using CSS sprites... Wow what a improvement its taking care of 2 problem in one hit. The plugin if vB4 is fairly easy to do and it working awesome... http://gtmetrix.com/reports/forum.mopar1973man.com/CrRccKWt Got the page load times down to 1-2 second now and the server over cut majorly compared to sites like DTR.com and CF.com M73M.com is only requesting 24 files from the server for 388K worth of files... That a huge saving in server load this mean we can handle more users on a smaller server for much much longer! :smart::thumbup2:

No... Not yet... I'm going to squish them soon... :whistle:

Some of the animated GIF's will remain the same and the static pictures will get a good crushing of the compressor and then re-uploaded to the site.

Now with a few more tweaks now I'm a Double A rating!

Try grading any other site and you'll see I'm taking a extreme amount of effort to make the best site around!
