Selective Breakage

One of the good things about writing your own wiki/blog/everything engine is that you can break it whenever you want.

So I’ve been doing that piecemeal this week in preparation for a few more features - refreshed SPDY support, taking another stab at automatic content classification now that LSM is pretty much a given, and I’ve been tweaking the way I handle images - the vast majority of the images on the site are now resized on the fly from their larger versions.

Which means a few corner cases slipped through the cracks, obviously, hence some breakage.

I’ve also been fiddling with gevent a fair bit, since I’ve been using it at work for a few things and am quite impressed by the way it scales - gevent and bottle make an interesting pair, and I just might consider rewriting the site engine for even more raw performance once I get real-time indexing sorted out.

Optimistically, that may yet happen in 2013 :)
