Tweaked the Site

Salaam my friends. I fine tuned the site a little bit. The loading time was horrible over the last weeks. It tooks ages to load the whole site. First i thought that my hoster is the bottleneck but after checking some parameters & log files i quickly realized it must be an internal failure. So i decided to deactivate all wordpress plugins and try to find out which plugin is responsible for the delay. Bingo! Its my Statistic plugin. It took ages if the plugin is activated. Beside that the Theme K2 is  coming along with a large Java Script libary that is loaded if certain features are activated. I also disabled the interactive search and the Ajax commenting feature and now my site loads at blazing speeds on my computer. Perhaps someone in outta space can confirm this by simple leaving a comment. As you can see i also changed the layout again and added some
additional plugins on the sidebar.

Ok here comes a litte promotion for Matthias Blog. One of my buddies who is now living in Hong Kong. One of the most wonderful cities in the world. Never seen so much skycrapers in one place. My next trip to Hong Kong is scheduled for Q3-Q4 this year.

A colleague of mine just mentioned his favorite message for the last slide of a client presentation. I’d like to share it with you.

  3. and those who wonder what happened

Vyatta – The Black Box That Would Conquer Telecom

Did i miss something? Is Vyatta the next Asterisk? I came across the site after playing a little bit around with del.icio.us and the tag “telecom”.  Based on a quick scan of articles, Vyatta  seems to be something like a open-source router software running. If i have some spare time, perhaps i will dig a little bit deeper into the story behind Vyatta. For all the people out there, Om Malik – as always – already covered Vyatte in his blog.

Under construction

Don’t be afraid. I have everything under control. I’m just playing a little around with the latest SVN version of the K2 Theme for WordPress. Altough K2 is already one of the best available themes for WP it is just getting better and better. The latest version already support wordpress widgets. That’s absolutely awesome. You can now easily edit the content of the sidebar by easy drag & drop and extend the sidebar via plugins. A huge step forwards in terms of usability and simplicity. I have to create a new style sheet scheme and my litte relaunch is ready.

Btw. My Iran ISP is blocking flickr! 🙁 But that’s not the reason why you won’t see any pictures under ‘Photos’.

Some funny advertisement videos

Got this link from Malte. Un-Pimp My Ride (VW Advertisement). Should be really funny. Unfortunately i’m sitting in the hotel only left with an analog dial connection that is uncredible slow.

I will give a try tomorrow when we are back in the office. The internet access in the office ins’t really realiable, but a lot faster than this crappy 40,1kBit/s dial-in connection.

Email & Comment spam statistic

I just checked my wordpress admin panel. The following sentence captured my attention: “Akismet has caught 1,367 spam for you since you installed it.”
It’s nearly the same with email. On average i’m recieving 10 spam emails daily.

Ok, I got it. Everyone wants the become a self-made billionaire

As you might have noticed as an experienced reader of dosreis.de. I added a new voting poll. The result of the previous poll? The overhelming majority of my visitors decided to be self-made billionaires. I mean not a bad decision if this is a real option for you.
