A phony afternoon — 12 Comments

    • Heh!  I wasn't sure what you were on about until the last bit.  I'm flattered that you use the site as a speed comparison!  A lot of work went into reducing the load time.  You have also obviously robbed my feed-reader list?!

      I just clicked a link in Farcebook, went for a pee, made a cuppa and the damn thing is still blank and loading!

      Linux Mint 7.2!

  1. Sounds typical. But what really is praying on my alleged mind is what the hell is the dangerous endeavour that won't you explain…ever…anyway?

    • The dangerous endeavour is sitting down to make a series of phonecalls.  It usually results in massive hair loss, a clear and present danger of a heart attack and copious quantities of Prozac.

  2. Sorry if I robbed your feed-reader, but the intention of the video is that farcebook is the only site (of hundreds I use) where the cursor 'seems' to suggest that something (probing?) is running in the background. Linux 17 is an operating system within, or from, the development of the Linux kernel, as used by 'A Pipe and a Keyboard' in your other blog list. By "I hope you approve", I meant that I hoped you wouldn't be upset with my using of your blog page in the video. I have put a 'disclaimer' under the video for this reason. Thanks Headrambles.

    • Heh!  What I meant [about the feedreader] is that we keep track of the same sites. 

      I have no problem whatsoever with you using Rambles for any purpose.  It's a public website and anyone can use it for any purpose [even in their list of 10 Worst Websites?].  The only thing I might have a problem with is plagiarism, but then who would want to claim my content as their own?

      As I said, it's an added bonus that you use the site for speed comparison as I am constantly aware that slow sites are very irritating and off-putting.  I have spent considerable time streamlining the site to remove unnecessary crud.  One tool I use is Website Speed Test which currently reckons that the site loads in 1.04 seconds.  I'm happy with that.  I tried running Facebook through it, but the test failed!  Personally I think Facebook is a nightmare and avoid it where possible.

      My crack about Linux Mint was in reference to your comment saying [I assumed] that you ran Mint 7.0.  I had just upgraded my machine here to Mint 7.2.  Running sweet as a nut!

      • Not to be picky or off topic or anything but it's Mint 17.2, not 7.2. Unless it's a repeated typo? 😉

          • Happy? I don't know, I'll have to check with the wife….

            …yup, she says I'm happy. Which reminds me, I need to update to update her laptop and desktop PC to Mint 7.2.

  3. Well, I'm running 7.2 as well but what's .2 between friends. Thanks Headrambles.

    • We have just been corrected.  It's 17.2.  But what's a 10 between friends?
