Hopefully you will start noticing the AlamDV webpages loading faster. We are now using mod_gzip on the webserver for all the pages


This basically zips all the webpages before it sends them to you. Dont worry about unzipping the pages because you browser will do all this for you. The only difference you will notice is the speed, especially on longer pages like in the forum and the cinema. You will also be using less bandwidth which you can use for other things smile
All images, movies and other downloads are exempt from this process because they are already highly compressed, so this will not affect them.

Thanks to whoever suggested I implement this (I forget your name), hopefully it will improve the site for a lot of people.
