Link Caching / 2006-05-18 22:49

In an effort to improve server performance, I have implemented a basic caching system for the band pages and the home page. For this reason, you might notice (if you are very observant) that there's a slight lag in the main page updates, as the page now refresh every minute instead of being in real time. This might seem silly, but it actually saves hundreds of queries to the database. The band pages don't have such a lag as their cache is refreshed whenever an update is made.

On the plus side, the stats at the top are back... if anyone cares.
