Sprites are not created to optimize the size of the graphics used on a site.
They are created to minimize the number of http requests made from the browser to the server.
The idea is that the fewer http requests the browser makes the faster the page loads.

So what can you do to speed up your site?
Combined your files, combine multiple JavaScripts into one script, combine multiple CSS files into one style sheet, and use CSS Sprites and image maps

Decrease the number of components on your page to reduces the number of HTTP requests required for the page to load.

WordPress 3.0 “Thelonious”

This is going to be awesome to code for! I spent as much time as I could in the beta release so I can’t wait to create a theme that takes advantage of all the great new features.

New Greenville Web Design Site Live!

I just published up the new Greenville Web Design Site, and I am totally stoked by the new look!

There is a hidden “Easter Egg” in the design doesn’t do much but it’s just for fun.

I don’t consider the site “done” as I am still going to add a few more elements for usability and my portfolio page is still a work in progress.

The site features good clean XHTML, HTML5 elements, CSS2 and CSS3, php, JavaScript, custom jQuery and Open Source jQuery plug-ins, php and a brand spanking new WordPress template on the blog.

Please let me know if you find any bugs.

Yes I know some of the older posts don’t validate.

I have made the choice to stop supporting IE6, it’s freaking old people!

Final thought: jQuery rocks!
