In the past I've writen/posted a couple of articles on various "code" related topics. I figure thats fair game, because a lot of administration is automation.
After sending mail to a user today describing how some of the tag cloud is implemented I'm wondering if it would be interesting for people to learn how this site is implemented/extended/managed?
I think not, but I'm not sure. I could probably string something together talking about "intelligent URL design", and performance bottlenecks.
e.g. We were on the front-page of digg last week and handled it just fine. One article read about 16,000 in a day, which didn't cause any problems at all for the rest of the site as far as I can see. (I was away travelling either way.)
Maybe I could just mull it over for a few days, who knows I could just use it for the 2 year anniversary, although technically that is well past. I'll just pretend, again, that we were born in December. Worked last year ;)
