For us, New Relic will be really helpful to get the data to be monitored.
eHarmony does three things to figure out the feature set from their data to figure out how they go about matching people based on the questions they answer. (29 dimensions)
1) Compatibility matching

I was reading about the new bootstrap version which was recently released and stumbled upon ImageOptim. It's good in a way that it reduces the size of a jpeg image without reducing its quality.
As more and more images are being used, I feel it would be a great way to make our applications download faster for end users.
Was wondering if anyone in the EdLab has tried it and found any visible difference and how much percentage in size was reduced from the original image.
There is another one which I will be trying to ...
