A user from neighborhood WallStreet/1043/ instructs newcomers:

“Membership of Geocities is free and each member is provided with up to 1M of disk space for free. You can get a few good images in a megabyte and I’ll do that as soon as I can get around to it. […] Tripod is similar to Geocities but provides only 100K of disk space. 100K is not the greatest but still sufficient to create a reasonable Web page, as long as you don’t go overboard with graphics – again linking to off site graphics is a space saving boon.”

    The limit of 100kB might be the reason why Tripod still exists: There is really no reason to delete it.

    Good point. Those were definitely the good (bad?) ol-days of web design, trying to squeeze every last ounce of optimization out of everything.

    Even now, though, you still see people including full 4-6MB jpg files inline with only the img size tags to put reins on it, as opposed to making thumbnails. At least bad webdesign hasn’t gone away? (*sarcasm*)
