I got a client who wants to serve a rotating banner of very heavy images (some as much as 326kb) on his homepage. On a fast connection, that's not a problem.
But on a dial-up connection I am right now (overseas, in the middle east), waiting for his homepage to load is a long ordeal. I can't imagine anyone wanting architectural work bad enough to sit thru this: http://leadinc.no/drupal7/
The client doesn't want to spend more money and I've done a lot of freebies already.
But even half of America is still dialup - isn't that true? I don't dare to show this site to anyone lest they have dialup and think my work is crap.
Is there some easy-to-setup script to measure client bandwidth (or just measure loading time) and switch to a pre-determined lighter page?
Site is built on Drupal 7, php, served on apache, linux.
