Previously, lesterchan.net averages about 1,900ms in response time according to Pingdom Public Status Page. When I switched over to HTTPS, the response time increased to 2,600ms. I was still on Apache 2.4.7 running PHP 5.5.9 via mod_php.

When I made the switch to nginx 1.6.2 running PHP 5.5.22 via php-fpm, the response time decreases back to 1,900ms.

lesterchan.net v4.0

lesterchan.net v4.0
· ·

I launched lesterchan.net v3.0 on the 5th June 2008. More than 4 years later, it is time for a change in design/layout. I decided to go back to the light color theme because it is easier to match colors and icons.

Welcome to lesterchan.net v4.0. It is built using Boostrap with icons from Fatcow and the new logo is done by Li Xiang. Because it is built using Bootstrap, lesterchan.net now incorporates responsive design.
