Music from Our Tube; Aimee Mann live on KEXP

Ever since I saw Magnolia I’ve been a fan of Aimee Mann. Not that I know all her songs, not that I listen to her music that regularly, but every time I do I regret having waited that long.

Anyway, she’s still going strong with high-quality songwriting about the not-so-pleasant aspects of life. This is her in the KEXP studios in July 2017, enjoy!

Sucuri, TTFB and Google ranking

Sucuri writes about their pov on performance:

We focus on useful metrics to optimize speed, like total time, not first byte or server response time.

Whereas Neil Patel writes:

When you’re in the weeds of optimizing your site speed, play smart. Instead of trying hard to push down your document complete, start rendering, or fully loaded page load time metrics (all of which are important), focus on the highest-impact metric first: TTFB.

Where TTFB = time to first byte. Needless to say I’m with Neil on this!
