Lately, instead of adding content to my website or editiing audiobook recordings, I've been engaged in the anal-retentive task of minimizing my homepage's filesize. Web bloat has become a big problem nowadays, so this was a useful exercise in simplicity. I have done a few things I'm ashamed of, namely minifying my HTML and reducing my favicon to 16x16 pixels. However, this sacrifice has not been in vain. As of this post my homepage is 1.62KB and the top entry on 512kb.club, a meaningless achievement if there ever was one.
