Re: Page Speed Service - http://thinkvitamin.com/uncateg...
"I think the value proposition is strong. People who say you should optimize your website once instead of using a service may be forgetting that browsers and mobile devices are constantly changing. New optimizations are being developed all the time. Using a hosted service lets you take advantage of those new developments without having to do anything. Performance optimization tends to be the last item on developers to-do list and often gets put off for higher priority issues. At Torbit, we often hear people say "we know we could/should optimize our site but just haven't gotten around to it yet". Torbit offers a similar value proposition as Site Speed Service but we focus on customers who need a more robust solution and a company that is accessible when it comes to support.

Re: Scripting News: Why Google cares if you use your real name - http://www.disqus.com/people...
"Names actually make for pretty terrible primary keys.  Emails work way better & they already have those.
