Meet new design of LinuxScrew

A few days ago LinuxScrew website has moved to a new design and partially to a new hosting. It is still based on WordPress engine (I still think it’s the best platform for this class of websites). You are more than welcome to take a minute to look at new clean version of If you find any bugs or something that you feel should look different – just let me know.

LinuxScrew t is hosted at Linode cloud hosting and holds part of its static content in Amazon S3. I am user of Linode for 3 years and its performance, support, rates totally meet my needs and expectations but the only thing bothers me is rather long response time when requesting static content hosted in Linode cloud. In order to resolve this I migrated part of images and javascript files to S3 – this improved overal response time dramatically, especially for visits from Europe so it looks like I’ll stay with S3 for some time longer.

Btw, if you didn’t have a chance to try Pingdom for measuring website’s performance and monitoring it makes sense to do it now at
