Sensible days are gone

Years ago, our county website was managed by sensible blokes. The homepage was almost all text, pages were full of useful text-based info, and you were told how large documents were and how long it would take you to download them, given the speed of your connection. This is a rural area with mostly slow dial-up, so this was useful. That information is still there but the sensible ones are gone. The homepage and almost all other pages are now chock-full of multi-MiB-sized pics, and most areas cannot even be reach without turning on Javascript.
