comment Too many duplicate image alt attributes. What to do?
The images do have value in this case. The whole point of the table is to show 'yes' or 'no' values as part of a package comparison. With no images or alt text the content won't make any sense.

What is your question? And can you provide your website URL?

comment Google jQuery hosted library - is it any good?
That's a little misleading. Browsers download assets in parallel regardless of where they are hosted, but there is a limit to the number of things they'll download from the same host at once.

comment Which MIME type to compress? and what If I omit the `type` attribute from the HTML?
Well, it depends a bit on whether 'compress all' means literally that. But like I said, you don't want to compress things like images, as they are already compressed. So you waste server resources by doing so.

comment How do I determine if I should ask for additional CPU cores on my web server?
Have you tried benchmarking or load testing the site to see how much traffic it can handle at the moment? Also, are you sure your current page loads are <5 ms? As that is very fast.

comment SEO: best way to deal with short lifetime URLs?
The fact that it's a 410 is invisible to the user. You can control the content shown on this page, and since (in this example) the site knows what job posting was previously at this URL, the page can try to link to similar job postings in order to convert/engage the user as you suggested. There's no advantage in redirecting, but several disadvantages.

comment How should I format my HTML emails
Hoytman: this is tricky to do with PHP natively, I'd suggest using a third party mail library like SwiftMailer or Zend Mail to help with this.

comment SEO: best way to deal with short lifetime URLs?
Why do you think a 301 would be more useful than a user-friendly 410 page in this case? The latter is more technically correct, better for crawlers, and won't be seen as a 'soft 404' by Googlebot (see: support.google.com/webmasters/answer/181708?hl=en)

Are you referring to XML sitemaps, or a just a HTML 'sitemap' page?

comment How to scan files for malware as they are uploaded to the website?
Your goal shouldn't be to prevent hackers uploading files containing malware, it should be to prevent hackers from uploading files.

comment Can a foreign company take my domain name?
I've seen some scams where you get emails saying "XXX company wants to register <domain similar to yours>, which appears to be similar to your brand. If you want to register them contact us within X days" - I think you can safely ignore these
