One of the things that was slowing down Pixels as the site loaded was the eighteen-thousand comments we’ve racked up over years.

The solution to this was to transfer all the comments to the Disqus commenting system, which is used by tens of thousands of websites all over the world.

If you have a Disqus account, you know how it works. If you don’t, please sign up at Discqus and join the conversation!

AND PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH DISQUS.

I hate say it, but site seems to load a lot faster on the Chrome browser, as opposed to Safari. You might want to try it out. Chrome will remember your password, of course!

In any case, we’ve been doing optimization on Pixels for a couple of weeks and I hope you are noticing a quicker load time. Please let me know in the comments if you have or haven’t noticed a difference. Thank you!
