allpics.bml Pagination

Hi all,

I am interested in paginating my allpics.bml file. Mostly cause loading 100+ userpics can really slow my servers down. It's not horrendous yet, but I think I should attack the issue before it really becomes an issue. I was thinking pagination would be one way to combat the issue. Although I don't have very much Perl or Javascript experience. I do understand how it should work, maybe someone can toss me a couple ideas of how to approach it.

Pretty much I think you need to use some Javascript, and I am sure there's some loop in Perl that might have to be changed so it only calls 10 or 15 userpics at a time.

OR...

Is it possible to host userpics on another server? Something like Amazon S3 or another web server/MySQL on a faster pipe?

Thank you much!

Syndicated Feeds Not Fetching

Hi,

As of right before Christmas, which is when I did an update from the repository, my syndicated feeds stopped working.

Here is the crontab I have running to fetch articles for syndicated feeds:

30 * * * * /home3/commie/public_html/bin/ljmaint.pl synsuck > /dev/null

Can somone tell me if something changed in the repository or if there is something additional I need to do? Thanks.
