Just now completed caching, one of the longest pending task on my TO-DO list for Orkutfeeds.
Strangely, it took just 1 hour of coding and 2 hours of designing/thinking to implement caching! Had I known this earlier, OrkutFeeds would have never went down.
Anyway I hope service will run smoothly atleast for next few months. I don’t have enough free time to spend more on this free and ad-free (till now atleast) service.
One bad thing with caching is you won’t get updates from Orkut instantly. But if you have time to follow updates every second, why don’t you just log into Orkut!
Anyway just for info, here are caching duration for different type of feeds.
- Scrapbook feed – 10 minutes
- Topic feed – 30 minutes
- Community feed – 60 minutes
Adjusting these values are fairly easy on our end. So any discussion/suggestion related to these numbers are most welcomed. 🙂
As usual, with any change, new bugs may popup over the time. Catch them if you can! 😉
