These past few days I’ve been working on making AstroFix run faster. I’m not a programmer. I have a vague (repeat: vague) idea of what gzip, sprites and future expires headers do, but I really don’t understand what they are or how they work. As I’ve been poring over this information, it hit me: this is exactly how non-astrologers feel trying to understand the language of astrology. Non-astrologers feel the same way that I feel trying to understand the language of computer geeks: frustrated, angry, annoyed, lost, stranded, left out in the cold, not part of the club, out of my depth, in over my head, bewildered, betrayed (getting a little dramatic, lol)…and in desperate need of guidance, help, and straightforward answers.
