There’s a story on Digg about WordPress. Completely unrelated to the contents of the article, one commenter had this to say:
too bad no one ever sees wordpress themes because the sites go down after five diggs
Dong. That’s the sound of the “I think so too-bell ringing. It’s always the database server that chokes with an error message that’s as welcome as Bush trying to be funny. The author of WordPress claims things are dandy if you install WP Cache caching plugin.
I’ve met the chap, he’s bright. He might be right and maybe if WP-Cache worked for me I wouldn’t be writing this. Maybe if everyone used WP Cache, funny and sad comments like the afore-mentioned digg related one would be as plentiful as good Uwe Boll movies. That is, not.
Maybe if a caching mechanism was built-in to WordPress, I wouldn’t be citing bad metaphors.
Your experience? Butterflies and milk and honey?
