I have no idea, it was 8 photos (4 different photos in 2 sizes) for a 500 page, which kinda makes sense, BUT, they were too big to be base 64 encoded, and they didn't create any sort of loading in chunks or whatever so it was loaded every time the site was entered, crazy!

Agreed. There needs to be a reasonable size limit and purpose decided on for doing that sort of thing.
