Hello everyone! Just a little update: We're updating Neatorama's servers to try out a new super-duper caching system to help the blog survive traffic spikes. Neatorama seems to load faster for me already, if the ad server could just keep up.
We're discontinuing a couple of features to help fine-tune performance: no more displaying comments on the homepage (this was one of my favorite features on the blog, but sadly it had to go); no more email this post, poll and top commenters (in their current forms, anyhow). Oh, and we'll get the suggest-a-link page back up soon.
Some people had reported hiccups with the comment, but everything should be back to normal already. Lastly, thank you for reading the blog ... and please tell your friends about Neatorama!
