cnn.com has switch to very low graphics, in a very good response to the
congestion they have to be experiencing.
they also have a total of like one or two photos up, so http caching
should work well for ISPs whose customers are trying to reach them.
i'm glad someone over at cnn acted quickly -- those high K pages were
painfully slow to load.
anyone who's been putting it off really ought to consider setting up
a web cache -- it's really the only way that dialup customers can get
to news sites at times like this.
