    Published June 30th, 2005

    Just a quick one…I wanted to be able to find out, quickly, the weight (ie. the total size of all files) for any given page on a site. Page Info will give you some help, but it doesn’t always seem to work and it doesn’t give you a total. Anyway I hit Google and stumbled […]
