Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network.

Leverage browser caching for the following cacheable resources:

priority - 4 Prioritize visible content

Your page requires additional network round trips to render the above-the-fold content. For best performance, reduce the amount of HTML needed to render above-the-fold content.

The entire HTML response was not sufficient to render the above-the-fold content. This usually indicates that additional resources, loaded after HTML parsing, were required to render above-the-fold content. Prioritize visible content that is needed for rendering above-the-fold by including it directly in the HTML response.

Only about 5% of the final above-the-fold content could be rendered with the full HTML response.

priority - 1 Minify CSS

Compacting CSS code can save many bytes of data and speed up download and parse times.

Minify CSS for the following resources to reduce their size by 9.6KiB (19% reduction).

Minifying https://a.fsdn.com/sd/classic.css?release_20160513 could save 6.5KiB (22% reduction) after compression.
Minifying https://a.fsdn.com/sd/css/app.css?release_20160513 could save 3.1KiB (15% reduction) after compression.

priority - 1 Minify JavaScript

Compacting JavaScript code can save many bytes of data and speed up downloading, parsing, and execution time.

Minify JavaScript for the following resources to reduce their size by 5.3KiB (78% reduction).

Minifying https://consent-pref.truste.com/defaultpreferencemanager/truste could save 4.3KiB (99% reduction) after compression.
Minifying https://tag.crsspxl.com/s1.js?d=2397&cb=1465716549312 could save 1,021B (42% reduction).

priority - 1 Minify HTML

Compacting HTML code, including any inline JavaScript and CSS contained in it, can save many bytes of data and speed up download and parse times.

Minify HTML for the following resources to reduce their size by 5.5KiB (15% reduction).

Minifying https://slashdot.org/ could save 3.2KiB (11% reduction) after compression.
Minifying https://consent-pref.truste.com/?type=slashdot&sit…://consent.truste.com/ could save 2.3KiB (34% reduction).

slashdot.org Ping

Ping is a networking utility tool to test if a particular host is reachable. It is a diagnostic that checks reachability of a host on an Internet Protocol (IP) network. In a computer network, a ping test is a way of sending messages from one host to another. Aside from checking if the host is connected to a network, ping also gives indicators of the reliability and general speed of the connection.


slashdot.org TRACEROUTE

Traceroute is a network diagnostic tool used to track the pathway taken by a packet on an IP network from source to destination. Traceroute also records the time taken for each hop the packet makes during its route to the destination. Traceroute uses ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) echo packets with variable time to live values. The response time of each hop is calculated. To guarantee accuracy, each hop is queried multiple times (usually three times) to better measure the response of that particular hop.
