Anne Sullivan – Design Fast Websites

http://yuiblog.com/blog/2008/12/23/video-sullivan/

Anne Sullivan lets us know about how we can improve web code. Instead of designing one page at a time, we can first design the format of the headers, the text, etc. Then we can build modules. Finally we put the modules together to make a game.
Several companies like Amazon and Yahoo have investigated, to find that even 100 ms delays can lead to lack of page views. She advises that if we’re careful, we can make websites that have good performance. I reccommend her video!

Best Home Server Software.

Hive Five Best Home Server Software.
What are the best servers for a home system? This list really is packed with them. Apache is great, and it runs on many different platforms. Ubuntu and Debian servers are also excellent and free. I’ve not tried Windows Home Server, but I think it’s probably good, though if I had a choice between paying $99 for Windows Home Server and getting Ubuntu for free, I’d definitely go the Ubuntu route, because terminal is fun. And I’ve wanted to become a superuser since trying to get into the UNIX workstation at my dad’s work in the 80s.

New videogame lets you slap CEO online.

New videogame lets you slap CEO online.
Would you leave this recession alone or confront it? Playing this game, if you leave the recession alone, you see lots of people asking for money, but you just don’t give them any. You can give them money or not give them money. If you give them all money, all the CEOs and defaulting homeowners, your economy will fail, but if you don’t give them any money you can slap them instead. That’s right, in this game you can slap those people who make monetary requests. So if you slap them all, your economy fails, but if you don’t slap them, do nothing, or give them money, the only other option is to QUIT THIS CRAZY GAME.

“Every time I see your stupid [expletive] braces on those stupid [expletive] teeth of yours on that stupid [expletive] face of yours I just want to kill you with my bear fists.” [sic]

This is the kind of message you’ll get if you start an Anti-Obscenity Club. Kind of fucked-up, I think. But if you’re so opposed to foul language, I suppose you’ll upset the wrong kind of characters.
