  • That sounds like 3 unnecessary requests.

    • Fortunately, they're easy to block at the DNS level.

      • Oh, they're already in my privoxy blockfile, right between fimserve and googleadservices. I just don't understand why perldoc.perl.org needs to even try.

        • I just don't understand why perldoc.perl.org needs to even try Perhaps you could ask.

          • Okay... which of the features listed here

                    http://www.google.com/analytics/ [google.com]

            does it use?

            • I don't know, I'm not the one who maintains the site, or even put it together.

              My point was merely that it's silly to say "I can't understand why" if you haven't tried to find out the answer.

                • I'm sure you did consider some ideas about why one might want to use Google Analytics.

                  However, there are probably reasons that you didn't consider that Joshua found important. I suggest that if you want to know what they are, that you ask him.

            • One reason is for the browser and OS statistics - these tell me what platforms I need to test on.
  • Thanks for your work on speeding things up. It sounds like you've made a big change for the better for the users.

  • You probably know this, but another traditional approach is to put the JS files at the end of the HTML doc. The YSlow Firebug add-on probably has some other good tips.
  • I just wanted to say thanks for the work you've put into this. JFDI at its finest. It's a thankless task and seeing some of the less than helpful replies to some of your perldoc posts here makes me shake my head. Your work is appreciated mate.
