Bava GTO

One of the most talked about sessions of Reclaim Open in June was Tom Woodward’s “Your website is a slow, bloated, carbon-belching monstrosity.” I know this because our session on Reclaim Cloud went up against it, and it did not end well for us 🙂 It is a session we want to re-visit with Tom, and one I think about a lot because my site is the big bloated, carbon-belching monstrosity he warns against. I’m not gonna lie, I do kinda love that my site is a 70s muscle car, but at the same time I know they appeal and relevance is dated. Anyway, regardless of all that (or maybe because of it) my site is a super charged GTO thanks to my mult-region setup under the hood with a Cloudflare caching and optimizing delivery setup that makes it an untouchable, aerodynamic beast of a site.  It will make short work of Tom’s zeitgeist Prius off the starting line as we street race for web credit. Hell, I can even use images, which he can’t for fear of the bava!

Bring it on, Woodward! NOBODY!!!

    This is what I get for being nice to you.

    First, you asked me to do that session. I don’t care about this at all, but you have made it personal.

    Second, my site is hosted on Reclaim.

    Third, I think you would have to add up the additional data center and infrastructure costs that generate your site’s “speed.” This is the equivalent of using a mile time as a proxy for fitness . . . but then you take crystal meth every quarter lap for a better time.

      Hahahahaah, I knew you were going to blame Reclaim, but I am just using the affordances the web gods gave me! Cloudflare is ridiculous, kind amazing stuff from an infrasturcture POV, but you are right, it is a bellowing monstrosity that allures me.

    Tom’s right, Crystal meth with a side of steroids and protein power. No fair. Do OVER!

    Prius, maybe. Howzabout a VW instead. Let’s say GTI
