I love statistics charts, so I just had to make one for logicworld.net’s visits. It’s not visible to the public, but this is what it looks like:

Data prefetch - Felipe

I’ve implemented data prefetching in the forums, which basically means that the forums will be snappier when navigating. For example, the first post of a forum is prefetched when you visit a forum, that way when you click on that post the data will already be in your browser and it’ll load pretty much instantly!

If you’d like to receive an email each time we post one of these blogs, you can sign up for our newsletter. Be sure also to wishlist Logic World on Steam and join the official Discord.

See you next Wednesday!
