i hate to seem cynical, but we have heard all this before . promises of speed improvements and such.
hopefully i will be proven wrong because it would be wonderful to see improved website performance.
I'm much more of a cynic than most would know. Fact is this is the first big step to improve things around the website. If it doesn't work we will take the next step, and if that one fails we will take a break, have a coffee, burn something down, and then try again. Everything execpt the burning down part.
I just want the comunity to know that we are listening and taking steps to improve things and even if it works we will contiune that same train of thought.
