MozillaZine Forums Temporarily Offline

Saturday April 26th, 2003

Due to a large increase in traffic in recent weeks, MozillaZine's bandwidth usage has risen dramatically. We're currently working with our excellent hosts, American Data Technology, Inc., to find a new hosting solution that can accommodate MozillaZine's growing popularity. In the meantime, we've disabled the MozillaZine Forums, which accounted for much of the site's data transfer. This should reduce our bandwidth usage and also eliminate the MySQL errors that many of you have experienced recently. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we will endeavour to get the forums up and running again as soon as possible. Thanks to all our readers for your continued support.

I've just converted the images used in this page from GIF to PNG, I got a total saving of 7855 bytes. I didn't try to optimize the palette and didn't use PNGCRUSH, with a bit more optimization work on images I think you could save at least 10KB.
