Having a thread on this mailing list for the systems task notification,
updates, and annotation (such as David's below) forms a great case record
for learners and others.
Helps in collecting documentation too.

Thanks!          --Fred

FWIW, as far as problems go.... Needing another server (which Bernie
is adding today) is a pretty nice problem to have.  Could you try
again in a few hours.

For you networking types, a.sl.o is a python web application which is
backed by a mysql database.  To improve read performance, we use
memcached ( http://www.danga.com/memcached/ ).  But, writes still need
to access the db which tends to time out under current loads .

If anyone is interested in helping out....
