Since this is not something ephemeral (like your average blog entry), I have dedicated a whole page to it.
You’ll find it under tools.
I’ll keep adding to it and editing it, but there’s enough there I reckon for interest/discussion for now.
I don’t know what switches they pulled here at wordpress.com … but the lags of the past few weeks are gone.
I’ve got blistering speed now, and it feels awesome.
