    I just love coming accross such very clever ideas – I see theres a wordpress plugin on codecanyon now too – but I’ll try this first without the plugin 🙂

    Thanks for this very nice trick. But do you know that Google now shutting down this hosting feature. This feature will not be available after august 2016.
    So, I will recommend you to use GitHub for hosting CSS and JavaScript files and call with RawGit CDN (powered by MaxCDN) with unlimited bandwidth.
