๐Ÿ˜ Alex Holst Old post, I know, but now the entire site loads in 69ms for me. If you can get it below 50ms, it would start to become problematic as we would all be annoyed at why the new page isn't loading, but it already did. We just missed it.

๐Ÿ’ Lucian Marin Not only bad TV shows makes you feel that way. I felt like losing my mind because newer versions of PostgreSQL are running on port 5435 instead of 5432. Subreply was down for an hour. But I upgraded entire stack to latest versions. Page loading is down from ~110ms to ~60ms on my end.
๐Ÿ˜ Alex Holst Impressive. I've sometimes clicked a link here and blinked at the same time, wondering why the site was so slow. The new page had already loaded.

๐Ÿ˜ Alex Holst One reason I come back here is because this entire site loads in less than 130ms. It's just so refreshing, and that's even with the actual host being 15ms away.

๐Ÿ˜ Alex Holst I can't wait to see the results of the work Microsoft put into security back in the early 2000s. Any day now.

๐Ÿ’ Lucian Marin Mastodons have gone extinct for the very same reason, slow, easy to hunt down.
๐Ÿ˜ Alex Holst Thank you for making this! Have you written about the design / tech anywhere?

๐Ÿ˜ Alex Holst Oh, I love how fast this site loads. Even Mastodon could learn a thing or two.
