The online community of high-school through college-aged people, discussing anything and everything in a clean forum environment.
After spending some time thinking about different ways to re-enable the RSS feature for the-spot.net, I’ve finally hit on an idea that I’ve started writing the code for.
The original code would hit the main database to grab the newest posts on the forums…after it sorted all 77000 posts by date, and then grabbed the top 15-20 of them and their data. Since the entire site runs off of that one database, you can imagine how that would slow down everything when even just 10 people hit the site every 15 minutes.
So I am going to attempt my first distributed database scenario.
