Few big changes tonight:

  • Doing a 2 minute cache on the main page. This means votes and song info will be a bit dated (by 2 minutes), but means the main page will load MUCH faster.
  • Defaulting to "year" on main page. I rather do recent, but there needs to be a freshness factor to it, which I have not yet done (and need to get more VOTING!)
  • The recent vote list will now always display the last 10
  • BIG problem with images. We had been caching the amazon images, but for too long - so we will now stay current (Amazon changed the URL's to images, so what we had cached was no longer valid and returned a 0 byte image). This will take a bit to refresh - if the image info is too old it will refresh.
The social part has been going ok, and we're pretty happy with the new site. Just need to get more users using the social aspect of it!

The Record Pandora part is out, and working well.

I've started work on the new version of - should be interesting, as it adds a social element.
