Nice work! I first tried suggesting you to switch from GIF to PNG, but a few conversions being larger, I won't do that. Instead I will give you an optimization hint: sprites are good! Smile At <100 bytes per request you are wasting resources Razz

I just can't find that neat javascript thingy that loaded a tool on any page you would like to do sprites on and you just select the ones you want and etc. Sad

Thanks for the suggestion. I am not very good in the HTML/CSS design, so probably there are a lot of things that can be improved. I am trying to not use JavaScript in this design, but as long as the HTML templates and CSS style sheets are independent from the CGI engine, the users of the CMS can customize them on his preference.

BTW, yesterday I uploaded the last components I wanted:

1. The online article editor - now the authorized author can edit articles online and save them to the server.

2. Visitors comment feature - now everyone can comment the articles (there is a form at the end of the article).

These new features are still not tested closely, so the version can be considered "beta". I will not make changes for some time, but only bug fixes.

I am not very sure about the security issues with the comments feature. I made some effort to make it safe, but as long as I am not online security expert, some flaws are possible.

Any help and opinions on that matter will be greatly appreciated.

you can decrease the number of colors in an image before compression, it will significantlly decrease the size of the png.

gimp powaaaa!

For very small, low colors images, gif is still better. It supports small palettes: 2..7 bit colors that png doesn't support. For example, the attached image is 133 bytes and have 8 colors palette. Encoded in .png it grows at least to 900 bytes.

291 bytes are still more than double to 133bytes.
As long as GIF format is free now, I can't understand why there is a some kind of antipathy towards GIF images. Confused
Of course, if you need PNG advanced features - alpha channel, true color, etc. then the choice is predetermined. But for small images GIF is still better IMHO.

I think its because some are stuck in the 20th century where the gif format was licensed. xD

imho for very small pics gif is better.
(I just wanted to point that png is not so cruel)

Well, it is stable now and supports a lot of features.

It drives my home page: http://asm32.hopto.org more than a month now.

Does not crash and is still not hacked. Smile

That's how matters stand...

kalambong, G-WAN seems to be really interesting web server.
It supports my assembly CGI for sure. Maybe I will play with it later.



Seven months have passed.

John, I wonder if you have found time to play with G-Wan?

No, actually. Embarassed I still run lighttpd server on my home server (it is one core AMD Sempron) and is not heavy loaded.

On the other hand, for these 7 months, I managed to run MiniMagAsm on a regular commercial hosting - I mean http://fresh.flatassembler.net now is managed by MiniMagAsm on Bluehost 64bit Linux server.

Also, I am writing my own portable web server in assembly language, that will be able to run in Windows, Linux and KolibriOS.

New version of MiniMagAsm has been submitted. It is a new script "sitemap.cgi" that generates a XML file with links to all articles published.
