You might've noticed things are faster lately.

You might've also noticed a lot of CVS activity dealing with "memcached".

You might've put the two together. :-)

Yes, we're now running a bunch of memory cache daemons. In the LJ code, we always try to get things first from memory, then go to the database only as a last resort. (and when we do, we put it in memory)

n00b with introduction, compliments, and ideas

Hey all, new to the dev community on lj, although I've been posting on lj for about a year now. I hope to become at least a bit active here, as much as time permits.

I have really got into S2 in the last week or so and love it. Back in the Appendix B. FAQ of the S2 manual I found a remark in regards to question B.2. which I believe explains the experience I had with learning the S2 language.

"The language is very similar to other languages which geeks are already familiar with. The learning curve isn't too steep."
*chuckles* guess that implies I'm a geek. You all did a very good job in putting S2 together. A toast to the LiveJournal Devs, cheers!

In the S2 manual the description which I liked the best reads like this, "S2 was conceived to remove all limitations and make LiveJournal truly customizable in almost any conceivable way." Well I thought of two of the "almost unconceivable" ways to customize livejournal, but I may just be bringing up dusty old topics. And this may not even be the right venue for this... Collapse )

This is getting too long so I'll end it there. Critics, comments, and questions will be happily responded too.
