Introducing: Site Crunch -- Optimize Your Site

Introducing... Site Crunch!

Site Crunch is a script which will recursively walk through a directory structure and do its best to compress or otherwise "minify" the files it finds. It is designed to help optimize web sites, so it works against JPG and PNG images, as well as CSS, JavaScript and HTML files. My limited testing shows sites can often quite easily shed 10% of their bulk--not an insignificant amount!

More details and downloads can be found here: http://cirt.net/SiteCrunch.

Finally here... the shiny new product store!

You can get Nikto t-shirts, mugs, mouse pads and more. I'll even take customization requests and try to get new products out there--suggestions welcome.
