Why was the website so slow for so long?

The cause of the slowdown was a change to the ZFS dataset. In conjunction with the database server, very little caching was being done. This combination resulted in increased disk I/O as the system churned through the database. Details in the blog post which outlines the various things which changed. Many graphs.

Update to 1.1

simplestroke 1.1 adds a small daemon that listens for mouse button
clicks and removes the need to start simplestroke from e.g. xbindkeys.

Simplestroke is a simple utility that detects mouse gestures.  It
currently detects twelve pre-defined mouse gestures and prints the
name of the detected gesture to stdout, if any.  The output can then
e.g. be used in a simple shell script to execute commands.

Example usages could include closing windows in i3 by drawing a Z over
them or other window manipulations, or pausing your music player by
drawing a left-to-right line.
