Latency Tracker plugin for WordPress updated to version 2.0

I’ve updated my Latency Tracker plugin for WordPress to version 2.0. In case you haven’t seen it before, here is a short blurb about it.

The Latency Tracker plugin for WordPress is meant to give the admin a solid statistical overview of the PHP and mySQL execution time for each of the pages in their WP powered site. It tracks the min, max, and average number of mySQL queries a page makes, the min-max-avg time the PHP scripts took to execute, graphs the data, and presents a sortable list of the most recent hits. Whether you are trying to compare speeds between hosts, or trying to figure out if your site is getting slower or faster, the Latency Tracker plugin will give you solid numbers where you previously only had educated guesses.

New in this version:

  • Settings
  • Cron job to keep the table small automatically
  • Refactored the code to make it faster

Get the latest version on the plugin page.

Update: Just updated to 2.0.1 for a bug fix.

Gmail 502 Outage [February 2009]

Sounds like Google Apps is the culprit this time. Marco brought it to my attention this morning, hat tip to you!  I’ll have to take a look at this in depth, and update my Gmail Outage guide to reflect the new options that Google Gears provides when used in conjunction with Gmail.

Update: Check out the new Google Apps dashboard for the latest from several of the gApps.

Still Alive

I’m still alive and kicking, how about all of you?

I started a new job on January 1st and have been head down in code ever since. VFP and jQuery are still my languages, but I get to work on far more interesting projects these days. I work from home now, and if you have the discipline for it, I highly recommend it. The biggest benefit is that I get to hang out with the kids more.

Things I need to work on (as far as my blog goes):

  • Do some more talking about the awesomeness that is jQuery.
  • Update my Latency Tracker plugin and make it ready for release as a formal WordPress plugin.
  • More jQuery examples.
  • Bonus: More embarassing pictures of the kids.
