    Minimalist page / style at /home/phil. Only 12271 bytes for the front page + 1276 bytes for the css sheet (which is cached) 13547k total.
    Anyone get much lower?

    Not my cup of tea, but if less is more, then who am I to argue?

    I've got it down to 9656 bytes for the front page and 855 bytes for the css file... 10511 total.
    I'm going for the magical 10k mark (10240 bytes), only 271 more bytes to shead.
    I could just lowed the number of posts on the front page, but I like having at 10 there. 10 is a good number.

    I'm more of a fan of trying to strike a balance between presentation and weight, with the focus being on having an intelligently structured document, but I'm definitely happy to hear that someone is pushing the weight issues as much as they possibly can, down to the very last byte. When you feel that you're satisfied with how tight you've made it, you should definitely do a post on what you learned by doing so. There are definitely lessons to be shared there.

    If you took out all the post content - that would bring it right down I reckon :)

    you can also remove some closing tags(p, h1, h2, h3, em, strong, ...), which will unvalidate, but who cares when it's for a benefit of more than six hundred bites !!1

    And while you're at it, how about taking out all the division id's. Minimal to the maximum!
