Just wanted to let you all know that I’ve made a couple of changes recently, which should result in a somewhat faster performance of this site.
Firstly, before the last weekend, I’ve moved all my DNS hosting to Amazon Route 53 service. This should result in faster DNS queries all around the globe and minimize the potential downtimes.
Secondly, I’ve installed and configured the JS & CSS Optimizer WordPress plugin, which now results in much fewer HTTP requests needed to load the page, as well as fewer bytes to be transferred around. I’m still tweaking the settings for this one to see how much I can squeeze out of it, but I already see an improvement.
As always, if you see any issues, please let me know.
Two years ago (to the day) I blogged my opinion of the infinite scrolling. And what do I do now? I enable the infinite scrolling for this blog! Consistency? Who needs that …
I’m trying out the Flounder WordPress theme for my blog. It’ll take a few moments for me to configure everything, so please don’t get annoyed just yet. Theme options are fine, but it looks like I have a few issues with custom post types, which aren’t matching my previous theme (Favepersonal). I’ll update this post once I’m done – that’ll be the time to report the issues.
Update (April 9, 2014, 01:47am): most of it works now. There are still a couple of small quirks for me to fix, but feel free to let me know if you see anything wrong.
And here is the moment we’ve all been waiting for … every single site on this server is now served by Nginx. Of course, there is Apache behind for now to smooth out the migration, but The World Domination is right around the corner.
P.S.: Placeholder websites are served by another instance of Nginx, which runs inside an OpenVZ virtual machine.
P.P.S.: Can anybody make any sense out if it?
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 58,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 21 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Apparently, it’s trivial to add custom post types archives to the main menu. Enjoy!

Just upgraded my blog to WordPress 3.6 “Oscar”. As always, it took only a few clicks and seconds. All seems to be working fine.
