I received my Masters from the University of Toronto researching database scalability in the cloud. I spent now working as a Web developer at Bunch working on frontend HTML/CSS/JS, backend PHP/Python/MySQL, and iPhone app.

I'm currently a PhD student in the database group at the University of Waterloo.

comment How many domains to split components across?
If you use any JavaScript frameworks, you can also get Google to host these for you (code.google.com/apis/ajaxlibs). This has the added benefit that if the user has already visited another site which grabs JS from Google, they may already have it in cache.

comment Way to list “Contact Us” email address on web site, yet reduce likelihood of spam?
I've used this technique before and it seems to work well. It's also transparent for users and doesn't rely on JavaScript :)

I don't particularly like this technique because it makes your users work. I'd rather suck it up and take the spam.

comment How to make a printer-friendly version of a webpage?
Oh yes, and this one: smashingmagazine.com/2007/02/21/… Both good resources. The first link I posted gives a nice overview though that is probably good enough.
