Re: Question about rendering time
Yeah I’ve seem some really interesting hosting methods by running bbpress on several cheap shared hosts just to see how it behaves.
SMF still freaks me out though. Then again they have like 5 years of development or much more if you include YaBB experience.
I have this clever little idea to trick dreamhost by storing the “fastload” plugins and includes as mysql blobs and using eval. Their mysql stays consistently fast.
