  1. What you need is a caching reverse proxy sitting between your server(s?) and the net. (Hello Squid?, see: http://www.squid-cache.org)

    Secondly, even Slashdot is not foolish enough (that’s directed at the knuckleheads that produce this blogging software) to run a straight dynamic website.

    Use a database to store your media assets, ie stories, images, etc. but your backend should be batch oriented and when updated it spits out a new batch of flat files.

    Keep up the good work, and Lord knows the slashdoters are sure to visit again.

  2. Thanks charlie, for those tips. well i am learning all these issues the hard way – which is i guess not such a bad way to learn. thanks for your kind words as well
