Re: Still developing on a 32-bit OS?

When I'm using the 32 bit machine, I'd use the old version.

Re: Still developing on a 32-bit OS?

The machine is older and has 4GB of memory. At that memory size I judge 32 bit to be the wisest thing to do.

Re: Are you using 'Disallow' in robots.txt and think a search engine won't list your page?

Makes me think of the way DNT is not obeyed by just about anybody. Imagine if there were: Do Not Track (With a richer instruction including things like, "if any of my data will end up at XXX, YYY...; first party re-identification allowed...) Do not collect data Do not de-anonymise Do not advertise a...

Re: Still developing on a 32-bit OS?

Periodically, maybe once a year, I use a 32 bit Win 10 machine. It's a laptop.

This might be for up to 4 weeks.

In those times I generally need to do some work with the validator.

That's interesting:

"If you don't want me to read your page, then I must read your page".

Am I being too harsh?

Re: Old SEO is finally dead

People who produced this sort of junk site (word salad unreadable nonsense) deserve what they've now got.

In a way the problem was caused by search engines.

(It may be a bit insulting to call it SEO though.)

Re: Unneeded css

Interesting contrast. We just had the warmest December night recorded in Sydney. Previous record was set in 1868!

Re: CSS Inheritance

How much of the content were you able to edit using regular expressions?

In the past I've found that an extremely productive way to do these things.

Re: Getting Ready for HTTP/2

As HTTP2 gets more real, there's another way to check for it. Browser independent. Run Wireshark.

Re: Finding it harder to read websites?

Thanks. There's more similar wrongness. On that backchannel page for example the "disappearing right scroll bar" is defective. (It leads to inadvertent page changing (I got two of them) and "unwanted big scroll jumps".) Not to mention those "one page web sites" that are losing users. (By fitting it ...

Re: HTTP/2 is too slow. Now we have QUIC.

Thanks for that.

That syn/ack triple handshake is clearly a problem.

Notes:
1. Wireshark (naturally) can handle QUIC packets.
2. The site has an RSS feed (implemented primitively) so you don't even need to sign up for email if you use feeds.

Re: Transitioning Customers site.

I've seen sites slow down when moved to WP. One option is to form a subdomain and put that only on WP if that's what you want. If you do that I agree with Albert that WP fora are the places to ask. I recommend building your own styling if it's important, rather than trying to shoehorn something else...

Re: What is Container based hosting?

The answer that makes sense to you will depend on your background. I have no idea about Kyup and where you can get it. Hope the following helps. Containers are a bit like VM's (Virtual Machines) but lighter weight. The architecture differs from VM's (obviously). If you explore how Docker works that ...

I haven't examined their rating method in detail, but am pleased to see that they publish code to run your own. (It's Python 3.)
