Faster, Faster

I apologize for the dearth in posting, but we've been busy. For one thing, I left one job, joined another and moved roughly 1,100 miles North. As such, I am proud to announce the opening of the Seattle WishRadar office. It's a bit sad that none of the founders remains in our original Santa Barbara location, but I have to look at it as a growth opportunity.

If any of you WishRadar fans in the Puget Sound area want to welcome me to the region by purchasing for me one or more of your fine, locally brewed, frosty, malted beverages, please do contact me (jason at wishradar dot com) and I will oblige if at all possible.

Regarding WishRadar progress, we've made some good strides at performance issues. Jonathan has done something clever to reduce page load times, and that's good news. I don't know the full details (perhaps he can blog here to explain), although as a power user, I should be frank when I say it's the results that count. He could be standing over the servers screaming "MOVE IT, YOU SLOBS!!" and that would be fine by me.

David and Brian, meanwhile, have been trying to improve our calls to Half and Amazon, since the smoother we are with them, the more often you get blipped with sweet deals. I've noticed an uptick in the blips I've received, personally, so I'm inclined to believe them when they say they're fighting the good fight.

In the next few months, we'll stick a fork in the performance thing and add a few sparkling new features that hopefully correspond to what you all have been requesting (new sources, perhaps?). Stay tuned.
