I'm not sure how many of you remember, but a year or so ago this site had intermittent slowness on the front page. It turned out that the 'recent blog posts' code was slow. It was borrowed code so I didn't have any luck troubleshooting.
Since then (until today) I have been manually updating the 'recent blog posts' titles on the front page every time a new post was published. Today, I rewrote the 'recent blog posts' code myself and implemented it on the front page.
My point is, please help me keep an eye on the front page for slowness. If it is significantly slower than other pages on the site, please report it here or hit me up with a PM.
