A downfall of being a "techie" is the insatiable appetite for tinkering with our website. After half a decade of tinkering with the same technology on the back end of this site, I finally made the switch to a new - bigger - better - faster technology.
Why is it better? Well, if you are like most red blooded Americans and even most Europeans, you want your website browsing experience to be uber-fast. When shopping for a home for sale in Jacksonville or a home on the river, you want the pages to load fast, pictures to be big, and you want it now! (at least that's what I want).
Our old site was getting a little too slow with all the pages we hosted. It was lagging, and the constant tinkering with the old thoroughbred engine behind the scenes finally unveiled the obvious: It was no thoroughbred in 2014 standards. So I studied the technology available, and chose the best option currently available on the market.
Now the site will flat out fly!
