So, one thing that i have noticed over the last couple of months is how slow my blog has become. it may be because the machine that is hosting the blog is running slower than it should be. it could be the data backend. it could (but hopefully isent) the ISA server sitting infront of the network. it could be a number of things. I will be installing Windows Server 2008 on my Dual Opteron machine in the next few days and will move the blog to that, hopefully speeding up the responces.
Speaking of which, my image site has been modified. Now all images that are served from Amazon S3 are marked as cachable for 6 hours. i have to look into this a bit more, and may increese the time to something a bit more, like 12 or 24 hours, or maybe even 2 or 3 days.
