Make your blog super fast with W3 Total Cache plugin

I have recently installed the W3 Total Cache plugin, and it has made a tremendous difference. I have no specific metrics, but the feeling I have is as if it loads at least three times faster!! WOW!

What makes the biggest contribution is CDN (content delivery network), which I set up on a subdomain. It is not the easiest thing to do and it took a couple hours of tweaking to get it just right. I mostly followed the instructions found here:

I also got some hints from How To Install W3 Total Cache Tutorial – Setup Guide and How To Install W3 Total Cache 0.9 Setup Guide. διαβάστε περισσότερα

New WordPress major version and new theme!!

I installed the new v.3.0 of WordPress and in was IM-Pressed with the new default theme, «Twenty Ten«… (everyone got «2010», right?)

The default font size (16px) appeared a bit too large at first, but after experimenting (in the theme editor, «style.css», content font size)… I just went back to the default… very readable…

Very nice work, indeed! Love at first site, switched to it, right away!!
