@dajbelshaw The image could be optimized to weight almost nothing (specially because it's in B&W), and the font is something users will have to download anyways most of the time as soon as they click a link to another section. And it can also be optimized by removing characters you don't use.
But I know this is not what "keep the current one" means, because you're probably using different libraries/plugins. But I don't think design should be constrained to page weight, most of the time.
@dajbelshaw I actually voted for sticking with the one you've got, but here's the catch.
I think 1024 is just an arbitrary number, and I don't see the point on trying to stay under that particular one. I think you should strive to make the design that you like as efficient as possible. And looking at your current one, it doesn't seem like it'd take a lot of resources. You could do it with the image, the font, and very little CSS/JS.
@dajbelshaw I see, I didn't even notice, but it seems like these are water-resistant. I've been using them for years, including for sport, and I haven't had any issues.
The only thing I'm missing is knowing the battery %. They have good battery life, but when it's running out it says an annoying "battery low" message every 30 seconds xD. I tried some apps a while ago and they didn't quite work... Maybe it's time to try again :).
@dajbelshaw I actually prefer bluetooth earphones with wires! These are the ones I use, and they are great because you get all the benefits of bluetooth (no tangling of wires), and you can keep them hanging on your neck when you remove them. They are supposed to be for sport, but I use them all the time :) (except at home of course).

@humanetech Hey, how did you request it? I see that some people has already been accepted, but I couldn't find your toot requesting access. It should be something like this: https://mastodon.social/@madnificent/106102058109837751
New blogpost! This one turned out more like a rant than I would've liked, but here it goes: https://noeldemartin.com/blog/what-technology-wants
@aral I've added the header to my sites, but I couldn't do it for my apps because they are hosted on Github Pages... Maybe it is time to give render.com a try.
Thanks to @aral for the heads-up :).

@Madmonkey So far I'm using GitHub pages, but once it's released I'd like it to work anywhere since it's only static assets, there is no server-side code. You could potentially download a zip file and host it anywhere :) It's not ready yet, and I don't recommend using it in production, but you can find the work in progress here https://github.com/noeldemartin/umai
@Madmonkey You mean where is the app hosted? Or where do I host my personal Solid POD?
