Forums – why do you always have to register?!!

It’s such a waste of time having to register on forums.

To make just one comment that would normally take ten seconds you have to spend five minutes filling in your details, clicking on an activation email, storing your new password somewhere and then finally logging in – a complete pain!

There should be a feature on the site that says:
“I recommend this answer” which you don’t have to login to use – would make life so much simpler.

What is memcached?

memcached is a high-performance, distributed memory object caching system, generic in nature, but intended for use in speeding up dynamic web applications by alleviating database load.

Danga Interactive developed memcached to enhance the speed of, a site which was already doing 20 million+ dynamic page views per day for 1 million users with a bunch of webservers and a bunch of database servers. memcached dropped the database load to almost nothing, yielding faster page load times for users, better resource utilization, and faster access to the databases on a memcache miss.
