Re: File size and greener internetting

As network admin, here's my 2c

Obviously there's some logic about filesize and download time. However you must pay in mind that the infrastructure is working 24/7 and network load doesn't necessary reflect on power consumption, in fact from experience I know that the relevance for servers lays not in size, but access frequency (because of file buffering).

However, there's one valid point you make a JPEG file with quality 99 will be often nearly half the filesize of one with q=100, and you won't really spot the difference.

Serving such files says good things about you caring for potential viewer with "weak" bandwith, too.
