I have decided that since I don't have too much time in the next three months to update a lot of the UI for this site then I will be spending my time making it load faster, especially on the main page. This first bottleneck that I noticed was when the feeds at the bottom of the page where being de-cached, the entire page was not being loaded until they were done. This has been rectified by having those load separately through AJAX calls after the page has finished loading.
The next area of improvements will be the portfolio gallery.
It is all about getting to where you have to go faster and more efficient.
