1 That Inwin case is awesome.  I saw someone doing a mention of it--Gamers Nexus maybe?--during the show in which it was introduced, only instead of the plain attract pattern Tom's shows, the case had an actual animation on it.  Space Invaders, I think, was part of it.

"most people wouldn’t opt out either. And if they do, there are plenty of things we could do to push them to opt-in again, such as asking for a new confirmation every few hours, or asking them to navigate to settings every few hours to confirm the opt-out."  You can fuck right off.  "We have lost our freedom. If we can get them back with a little bit of privacy, are we not going to consider it? "  No, because once you let Big Brother start tracking you, he's not going to stop.  The guy who you quoted had a contemporary who said "f ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!"

2 I ran Ace's blog through Page Speed.  It has a 130 second "time to interactive" and a 38 score.
I read his page daily but I wish he'd update it a bit (although Stylish helps.)

3 YouTube videos murder your PageSpeed score.

Funny that, seeing how both are produced by Google.

4 I noticed that, and I remember Ace making a few posts about trying to improve the load times last year. (I mean, I wish he'd also get off that awful 1990s font and make it a bit bigger, too, but like I said, Stylish helps.  These days, any site I visit more than a couple times that has tiny fonts, or hard-to-read ones, or frigging grey text gets adjusted.)

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
