Warning: this is a long read. We make no apologies about it.

What's more, these techniques enable you to increase speed and capacity without great expense.


This isn't so much of a technical rundown for industry experts, but moreover, it's aimed at web site owners. If you run a web site that is either growing in popularity, likely to need to handle a high surge of traffic very rapidly, or which you simply want running at lightning fast speeds, this post will give you the basic understanding of what is involved.

Earth Overshoot Day Arrived Earlier Than Ever

Written by Jo Stonehouse
Earth Overshoot Day. It's not one of those holidays that you're probably familiar with. It's far less known than "Pancake Day", and much less fun than Appreciate a Dragon Day. Unfortunately, it's significantly more depressing. Earth Overshoot Day marks the day that the world has used as much from nature as the planet is capable of renewing in a whole year. And this year, it arrived far earlier than ever before - five days earlier than in 2015, and eleven days earlier than 2014. The day will most likely have passed you by without notice. Your life will have continued as it did before. Yet this day is a red flag, a warning that we humans are collectively draining the planet of its resources at an ever increasing pace.
