I thought I’d announce this one as you guys are so good at picking up on when we cache something new in forums.

The new threads sidebar on the right is now cached for 1 minute. We had to do it as it seems there’s some kind of aggressive forum scraper out there somewhere and it was slowing the whole site down.

This will only be in place until monday – the new super awesome forums not only look better, but they perform much better as well (we hope). We just had to deploy something quickly so the site stays alive until we get the new one out there.

We apologise for the slight delay in your contributions to absurb blockquoting forum threads getting to the sidebar :)

Well this is exciting but I’m wondering if Monday is the best day to launch it? It seems maybe a Thursday or Friday would have been a better day? Well, anyway, I’m sure the new look will spice things up and hopefully that will mean more sales for everyone :)

Thursdays or Fridays are terrible launch days for at least two good reasons.

The first is that if something goes wrong, it ruins our weekend. The other is that traffic is higher later in the week – so it gives us a few days to tweak the code’s performance as the traffic ramps up instead of jumping in at the deep end.

We’ve done our level best to ensure the new code is stable and fast, but especially for performance related code, things are just sometimes different in production.
