? Blog upgrades – speed and security

psfs-building-sign-real-life

Quick summary of recent updates and changes to the blog, for transparency and your enjoyment! This post will also contain a dump of some inspiration for upcoming Minecraft builds. TLDR – the website now uses secure HTTPS connection, and (after a LOT of invisible back-end tweaking) should now be twice as fast.

Website upgrades

  • Cookie policy now shows which cookies are used and why (etc.)
  • Check the website URL, we’re now running on certified and secure HTTPS connections!
  • The website is now at full speed, even on mobile (most of the time anyway, it varies)
  • This is due to back-end tweaks to plugins and scripts, and based on suggestions from Google page speed insights. You can see the results in the screenshots below.
  • Number of monthly posts has increased, this may continue (see article archives in sidebar)
  • Images were optimized to load faster, including replacing all pictures to faster JPEG format
  • Finally, the simple and light weight blog is responsive as always on mobile devices!

Images and plans

Above are three buildings I had already built in the game! You can find them on my Planet Minecraft (MegaMinerDL), though there is no download yet and no mention of them on the blog. Below are three skyscrapers I like, and might use as inspiration in the future. The first is Rockefeller Center, which many builders have already built in the game. Second appears in this post’s thumbnail and is the (guess what) PSFS building. The last is the head quarters of AT&T.
