I can honestly say that “it’s done”. Finally. RC-Thoughts.com is now so optimized it can be with my limited knowledge and I have to be both very pleased and somewhat proud :)
Testing with the famous GTmetrix from Dallas, US with Chrome gives a result of 0.9 seconds for page to load. Same test from London, UK gives a result of 0.4 seconds.
The difference between US and UK comes purely from delay in internet, connecting from UK to RC-Thoughts.com server in Netherlands takes ~0.5 seconds less compared to US. And that is something I cannot do anything to.
What’s more important to me is that site now get’s 100% score on both Pagespeed and YSlow. This can be considered as a really great taking into account the fact that this is a WordPress-site with quite a lot of plugins.
Well. Time to concentrate on something totally different. This Bell 222 needs to be re-worked a bit, it’s been sitting in a storage room for many years. Goal is to have it up in the air at spring latest.
So, enjoy the hobby, and hopefully you can also enjoy a lot faster and more stable RC-Thoughts.com from now on!
