I have completed the server migration should all five sites (this blog, Morgon’s blog, Spirit Made Steel, Silver Empire, and Lyonesse). It’s possible that due to the vagaries of DNS you might still see one of the old sites on your end through tomorrow, but that should be it.

I’ve also spent a lot of time working with various caching and optimization plugins for WordPress. I’m not quite done with everything yet. However, the dojo site has achieved the Holy Grail: a 100 score on Google’s PageSpeed Insights test. I’ve read guides that have said that’s nearly impossible with WordPress and that it’s a waste of time to try. In fact, it’s all just a matter of getting the right caching and optimization plugins and tuning them correctly. I’ll have a guide up for how to do it within the next few weeks.

I’ve replicated some of that on the other sites already – they should be loading MUCH faster than before. I’ll be finishing that up over the next few days.
