Searching and Bandwidth May 26, 2001 1:34 PM   Subscribe

Regarding the bandwidth concerns: Which uses less bandwidth?

—The occasional double post? And the obligatory flames? And the use of the search function to justify thse flames?

—Or using the search function prior to posting at all?

Please check.

Considering the amount of double posts today, I'd say people are trying to conserve bandwidth by recycling.

When Matt goes away, you really get to see how much work he puts into this site.

I think I'll go make another donation to the paypal account now.

Ignoring the obvious snark thing here: we're talking about bandwidth, not CPU cycles. One search takes next to nothing compared to hundreds of page loads.
