A plea to the blogsphere:
I read the daily bloglist on an iPhone (sometimes) and a laptop (sometimes).
On the iPhone, I am often at the mercy of a crap wireless or crap Tesco Mobile.
On the laptop, I am blessed with a Big Fat Dedicated internet connection.
On both, some blogs take forever to load. Forever, then a day. On the iPhone it is because of bandwidth. On the laptop it is because of processor throttling.
May I be so bold as to suggest to bloggers that they try to load their blogs on substandard shite and see what happens?
I will say that Holby's new one at oldholborn.net is lightning, apart from the picture at the top. And mine is pretty quick too. And Corrugated-Soundbite, and ColdSteelRain.
But there are some which are painful, so painful that even when they appear to have loaded you can't then scroll them for ages until they've finished loading, and all you can see is the huge banner at the top until then.
If you want me to have a look at your particular blog and let you know how it performs, let me know in the comments, but please don't moan at me when I tell you it's pants.
Suffice to say three of my most read blogs suffer from this. It's mainly posting daft video links which slug them. And I hate videos anyway, I prefer to read, because I can. I can't have the sound on at work and at "home" I have not internet to speak of. Oh, and the iPhone won't play "Flash". Yet.
Thanks for listening.
