    Greetings, all—

    As some of you have noted, there have been a few TMO slowdowns/outages lately, and today we installed a caching mechanism that should alleviate all of these types of outages.

    Caches are funny beasts, though, and there are many things (like the forum contents for logged-in users) that one would NOT want cached. While we believe we’ve caught and configured for all of those obvious exceptions, Murphy’s Law dictates that we missed something.

    So please be a little (more?) vocal about this stuff here over the next few days as we ensure that we’ve got things tweaked just perfectly for you.

    Thanks!
