I’m having some strong considerations regarding converting one of my two sites to a static file website running on Ghost hosted at Digital Ocean. I’ve always been intrigued about performance and removing the fat that comes with WordPress. Don’t get me wrong. I love WordPress for all that it is, but I’m thinking that for […]
So, I’m using the new desktop app to post to my blog… I think I might like this. Might get me writing a bit more frequently.
I was just about to write a quick little blog post about how I think the Brave browser is nice and fast, but then I tired to get into Google Sheets to look something up and it didn’t work in Brave. Neither did logging into my WordPress (self-hosted) site. I had to switch to Safari […]

I talked about: Mobile Web Monitoring Challenges Website Performance: What is it? Mobile Testing 3rd party calls Summary I discussed some key benchmarks to look for in mobile performance testing: End to end […]
Thanks to Alex, been working on some new projects. Working with Heroku (had always been curious about their services) to install a node.js application called Telescope for some exciting things I can’t disclose yet.

Ars Technica has […]
So, once in a lifetime we get Pi day to 10 digits. March 14, 2015 at 09:26:53 seconds. Pretty fun number stuff if you ask me. What else is cool is that Albert Einstein’s birth date is March 14. So take today to enjoy 3.141592653 and heck, grab yourself a piece of pie!
I have been a big fan of Almico’s SpeedFan for probably as many years as it’s been out. I used to be in love with the app because I overclocked the heck out of my computers and wanted to keep track of various temperatures: CPU, GPU, Chipset, Case, and others. I also wanted to keep […]
I’m not normally looking to make changes like this… who am I kidding? Of course I am. I’m a speed freak. I love pushing my technology to the limit. Thanks to reddit user erythrocytes64, you can make a simple change to a Chrome flag. Go into Chrome and surf to chrome://flags/#max-tiles-for-interest-area. Set that to 512 instead of […]
