There are several solutions:

- use older versions which have smaller EXE size (v3.1 about 170KB, v2 about 45KB)

- use C++ or Delphi or another language instead of AutoIt

Note: AutoIt compiled EXE size will not be smaller than today in the future. Take it as fact.

Those 5.25" diskettes are hard to find anyway, aren't they?

because when you compile a script, the entire autoit interpreter is compiled with it.

I never compile hardly anything though, i have autoit installed on my flash drive, and a registry script that associates .au3 files with the executable. So if I'm on a computer without autoit installed, i just plug in the flash drive, run the reg script, and its just as if it were installed.

56 Kbps / 8 = 7 KB/s

590 KB / 7 = 84.285 s

84.285 / 60 = 1.4 minutes

But seriously, most web pages are pushing 500KB these days, MSN.com is almost 400KB at any given time.
