Mnikr: Loads Decreased, Twitter Made Better

Just a few more changes today:

  • I pulled several parts of unused JavaScript out of what Mnikr is serving, leading to about a 60K reduction (yes, that’s after gzipping and minifying).
  • I’ve increased the time the feed grabber is willing to wait for feeds; you shouldn’t notice any additional load time, but some feeds that haven’t been loading properly, now will, or at least more often. (Twitter’s gone haywire, but that’s not my fault.)
  • I’ve added back @username linking in Twitter feeds, and added #hashtag linking as well (the latter to, as Mnikr doesn’t currently process hash tags). Hopefully this will be useful to those of you who have asked me for it!
