It has been a month now since I finished my Nanoc conversion work, and it’s
pretty obvious from the chart below that the performance improvements I expected
from converting to a static site are real, and are here to stay.
The chart is from Google’s search crawler, so it doesn’t represent real human
usage, but the dramatic lowering of the access times since the beginning of
February is undeniable. Previously, if you got unlucky, you might have waited
more than a second for even one of my pearls of wisdom. Now the most
banal observations might be available in mere milliseconds.
