The mybeerbuzz v2.1 – Beer Diet

13 January 2010

Scale In the spirit of New Year’s resolutions, the website has gone on a diet.  I launched mybeerbuzz 2.0 a few weeks ago, and since that time we’ve been working very hard to monitor the traffic.  It was my intent to try out some new resources on the new site and see what the response was.  In the end, it simply wasn’t worth the overhead to keep some of these new functions active given their limited use. 

As a result we put on a diet and I present to you 2.1.  We’ve removed some items I suspect most readers may not even notice, and worked to make the remaining items more efficient.

The resulting changes cut our page load speeds by over 75% and streamlined the content considerably.  Since we are dependent on some external resources (that are not always fast to load), I am working to streamline how we use these systems on to reduce our dependency on their load times…so stay tuned as we get even skinnier.  As always, your mileage may vary but please DO report your findings back.

Thanks for reporting back Josh. I found and removed the culprits.

Your site is not only better than Beeradvocate, but it loads faster and is way more reliable. They crash all the time now. Your updated page loads even faster now. Keep it up buzzy.
