With less than a week to go – I thought I better put a condensed checklist together for people who are just now signing up for the thirty day challenge. There is a link on top and along the side – but what the heck, I’ll include one here in this post too.

Preseason Catch-Up

Bring Out Your Inner Hacker…You Know You Want To

n this short video, Ed brings us up to speed on a quick little hack posted in the Thirty Day Challenge forums by “Mountainguy” from Australia. He was having trouble with the speed of Flock – turns out, other people were too. Here’s the video – below are the steps to take and some screen shots:

Speed Up Your Browsing In Flock

config

[1] type “about:config” into the address bar at the top and wait for page to load

—————————————————————–

Speed Up Flock - network.http

[2] in the filter type “network.http”

——————————————————————

Speed Up Flock - network.http settings 1

I had to split up these pictures to get them to fit and still be readable – I hope that with the instructions below and the video, it will all make sense…

[3] locate the strand called “network.http.pipelining” and double click it to change the value from false to true

[4] Do the same to “network.http.proxy.pipelining” – double click it too.

[5] Then locate “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” – double click and change the value to 30 or higher (Ed and mountainguy are using 40 – for the screen shot, I’m using 35, but I’ll probably switch it to 40 – why not?)

Speed Up Flock - network.http settings 2

[6] Finally, close flock and load it up again…”

Here’s some additional reading plus some further discussion on speed related issues….
