When I was making Telebubby Fun Land with a 33.3 modem, I tried to keep all my Flash files under 100k. How times change!


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I'm on dialup, and yes, it is a little bit faster, thank you Tom.

It loads a bit faster, but I have a tweaked firefox so I really can't notice.

Sorry, Tom. There's no changes to report for the 'Uber-fast conncetions' side of things. Those people visiting via 56k-land should enjoy a page which loads up 2 days quicker now, though.

Not really. For some reason, that "Our Sponsors" part of the page is always blank for me, and there is only one "Bullz-Eye" ad for me.

Well, at least the dial-up people will be happy, from what I've heard. I guess my friends will have a better time on Newgrounds now (at least, on the front page).

I didn't really notice much difference at all, but it seems everything has been tightened up a bit. Less blank space here and there where i think i remembered it before. I could be just blowing smoke and seeing things, but it seems cleaner now that you've mentioned it.

On another note:

Tom, will you be posting a list of potential things that should be changed, added, or removed from NG? No promise sor anything, but a list of what you guys got planned for 05, if anything.
I was wondering what you guys took from that last thread where people gave out ideas and such; and what you already had planned before that thread.

If you already did this, i apologize for my ignorance.

I didn't notice anything, but that's good because you cut the file size, right?

Oh, and what's 'anal'?

My bookmark's set to the main Portal page so I rarely look at it... had a quick look but didn't notice too much difference to be honest.
