comment google changing crawl speed: doesn't seem to work. Why?
Any settings that control crawl rate (including those in sitemap.xml) only influence how you'd like to allow google to crawl your page. You can manipulate the settings to give parts of your site preference over others (because the crawlers may only be given a limited time to crawl your site), or to limit how often Google can crawl your content(some sites have been brought to their needs by the crawlers in the past), but schedule for when the crawlers run is controlled by Google and Google alone.

comment How to manage multiple domains on same server
Here's what I grok'd. 1 domain name, 1 host, multiple sites. If the host is running an Apache server that would mean adding subdomains using Virtual Hosts in httpd.conf. In some other type of hosting framework (ex Google App Engine) it would probably mean adding sub-domain handles to the config/router.

+1 nice answer, especially with localized info.

comment How to manage multiple domains on same server
I reluctantly gave an upvote. Your answer would be a lot better if you could give a paraphrased summary of the link and/or provide some sample configurations to demonstrate how it's done.

comment How to manage multiple domains on same server
I won't downvote but this doesn't answer the question. I think what the op is referring to is multiple subdomains on a site, not multiple subdomains pointing to one subdomain. Ex. site.com, blog1.site.com, blog2.site.com, blogs.site.com, mail.site.com (webmail), admin.site.com, www.site.com (redirects to site.com), etc...

comment What organizations handle the TLD registries and what are the links to their whois search pages
What happened to community wiki? I don't need the rep. I'd rather have good reference that others can edit.

comment Can anyone list some real examples of 'HTML5' being used in the wild?
@Michael Maybe it's a browser issue. I played it for about 2 hours without any lag in Chrome.

comment Who Is Against CSS and JS?
Didn't they run the W3C during the XHTML 1.0/HTML 4.01 era and before the emergence of the WHATWG? I'm glad that's over. ::sigh::

comment Should I combine js/css files into a single file?
And... like @Larry Smithmier said in his answer, use a CDN (ex. Google) to deliver common libraries (ex. jquery) to completely avoid initial cache warming costs for those files.

comment Should I combine js/css files into a single file?
You're doing it wrong. Either separate the parts out into individual files and take the warmup hit (caused by larger # of requests and cold cache) or programmatically combine the source files serverside and serve just 1 js, css, html page per hard link. Mixing files with different mime-types = bad.

comment Using rel=canonical with syndication
@Scott Good point. Sounds like an idea worth battling over in meta. I'm not really sure how complex it would be to implement but... removing rel=nofollow from accepted answers by users of sufficient rank would go a long way to giving credit to good sources on the web.

comment Purchasing a Domain from a Domain Squatter
+1 Good question. It really sucks that your desired domain was squatted. To be sure it doesn't happen again use a respectable domain whois search provider to check a name next time. I've addressed this here webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/287/…
