What did you do, swill? The site just got a lot faster.

Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, and end up getting charged double.

You noticed quickly… Smile

We rolled out a bunch of performance improvements today, so the site should be faster. I am happy to see that you have already noticed the difference. Let me know if you find any problems because we are still testing some of the things that we pushed out, so we may have a couple bugs still.

Enjoy the new speed.

Sorry I did not mention it before—but I noticed it too! Smile

For the record, we are currently only accelerating 1/2 of the traffic because we want to collect some statistics regarding the speed difference. If you try to load a page and it seems slow (other than the forum front page, which is just slow), try to reload the page because you were probably not getting served the accelerated version and you are likely to get the accelerated version if you reload the page. Just a bit of an FYI
