About this site's lack of design: Yes, it's supposed to look this way — I'm helping create a new sandbox theme for WordPress (see it on GitHub).

Dan Rubin's SuperfluousBanter

Design, random musings, and the Web. Since 1977


Bigger, Better, Faster, More!

It’s official: SuperfluousBanter now resides on our new server, a dual PIII with 4GB of RAM running RedHat Linux.

Mmm, fast…

The site should be zippier now (it certainly rebuilds much faster in MT), which always makes for a good user experience. Once all the bugs are ironed out for all the other MacOS.net clients, I’ll have some time to tinker around here a bit. I’ve got lots of ideas and plans (including a new design, which may or may not unveil itself by year’s end) which should, if nothing else, provide some amusing sideshow-like entertainment for you brutes.

Let me know if you see anything that isn’t as it should be, or to let me know how much faster the site is (or isn’t, if that’s the case).

    Dan — DEFINITELY Zippier! What host did you decide on?

    We ended up going with Westhost, based on a number of excellent recommendations, as well as their track record (they have a terrific uptime average).

    So far, we have no complaints, and the speed is definitely improved. There are still some optimizations to perform (for one, we’re trying to track down the cause for higher ping response times for the servers we’re on as opposed to others on their network — most of their network has a response of about 30ms from my personal DSL line on Bellsouth’s network, but our servers are responding in the 100ms area). Latency issues aside, we’re very pleased so far. It’s nice when things work the way they are supposed to :-)
