Throwing out the junk
That was fun.
I attacked the engine room with an angle grinder and an acetylene torch and ripped out a ton of rusty stuff. The place looks quite empty now. This site seems to be a lot faster too? I suppose it’s a bit like stripping all your clothes off and being able to run faster naked?
Anyhows it appears to be working. I’m sure there’s a load missing or broken though I haven’t noticed anything apart from my multilingual flag [which was a joke] and the “Like” button which was slowing things down a bit. Ironically most of the shit was stuff that was supposed to speed things up. Another batch I removed stopped spam, so instantly my email went mad with notifications saying I had new comments. They were all supposed to comment on something I posted thirteen years ago so maybe they have just been waiting since then?
And on the subject of spam…… Hey Lads! Stop advertising your fucking Viagra. I’m not interested and anyway I could buy it over the counter down at the pharmacy [should I ever be so desperate].
That possible little life changing situation I mentioned yesterday is firming up. Leastwise it is keeping me quite busy.
Watch this space.
A much better experience today.
Removing all the yoke that were to speed up the site seems to have worked? A little drop of irony there?
“That possible little life changing situation I mentioned yesterday is firming up” Ah, so you did go to the chemist.
This is why I choose my words carefully. I missed that double entendre!
