Social Media Today has a recent article telling marketers that website loading time is critical. Most users won't stick around long enough for slow websites to finish loading.

@pollomostro BTW, years ago I saw an odd picture in a photo book. It was a boy of about 5 years old, his mother, and I think a priest. The boy was nude and being passed through a sapling which had been split.
The caption said that this is a tradition in a region of Italy. They split a sapling and pass the child through it three times. Then they bind the tree back together so it will heal and continue to grow. This is supposed to bless him or ward of evil or something. Have you heard of this?
I just found my old Samsung Galaxy S III (U.S., model SCH-I535). I thought I got rid of it years ago.
Can anybody think of a good use for it? I'm already running #UbuntuTouch on a tablet, so I don't need to duplicate that functionality. Maybe another #Linux? Can I put it on my home network and have it do something for me? I don't think I need it as a phone.
I had an approximate address and was able to locate it in Google Street View…
It's the location of Buster Keaton's studio in Hollywood! That spot is now occupied by a trucking company. ☹️ But a few years ago, the Damfinos placed a bronze plaque in the sidewalk commemorating this hallowed ground! 😄 (Some other silent comedian also filmed some stuff there.)
You can see it for yourself here:
