FAVICON.ico a bandwidth hog???

Scott Hanselman stumbled across quite a revealing concept, determining that his FAVICON.ico image to have his logo appear in the address bar of a web browser sucked up 25GB of data transfer. Enlightening!

I checked my own stats, and while not impacting my bandwidth at the dramatic level that Scott's did, it is pretty revealing how much the little Guam flag that adorns my site's main content pages takes up when aggregated.

Thanks for the tip, Scott.
