I had a code review

in the website

Nothing as in depth as a line-for-line pickapart, but I asked for feedback on boards.ie. The feedback was great and has led to a huge performance boost to the site: I moved all of my media content to a local subdomain; I added a DNS prefetch directed to the media subdomain; and I changed jQuery to load from the footer (which as led to its own interesting problems-most WordPress plugins load their JavaScript into the header).

I’ve seen load times drop from over 4 seconds to under 1.5 on the currently media-heavy home page.

Hurray for peer review. \o/
