Text files are really small, and blog posts are just text files. Web pages are getting bigger and bigger over time. Maciej Cegłowski calls it the "The Website Obesity Crisis" (and you should watch his talk). In response to this, I've removed some assets from this site that I wasn't using. Individual articles are now ~12KB plus images, as they should be.

I guess I never realized that jQuery was ~90KB.
