We’ve added some speeeeeed

Just recently we switched to a new server but, despite our efforts (!), the site has continued to grow with more and more of you crazies joining in the fun on a daily basis.

Today we’ve switched on a new caching system which will, if we’ve tweaked it properly, make the website run a whole lot quicker than ever before. Pages should gush onto your screen and images should fly into your face. Truth is, we’ve had to switch to a new and improved caching system because our backend database has grown quite substantially. It’s over 1GB in size now, so we’re having to put further caching in place, alongside adjustments to the MySQL setup and ordered page loading, to ensure that it doesn’t take ages for articles to appear.

As with any significant change, we’re interested in hearing from you if weird things happen. Hopefully it’ll be OK though đŸ˜‰
