Does the site seem faster to you ?

I hooked some back end data into xCache, some front end file caching of templates using Zend Core, implemented some expires headers on images, css, js files so they cache for 24 hours (don't download every page)

I noticed a huge difference, but the butt dyno....

With the way the interwebs works it's hard to notice such things.

You're basically freeing up CPU cycles at the cost of memory. I've always found xcache to be a win no matter where i put it.

We have a lot of ram, but not a very good proc and slow hard drives, so it makes sense to use the ram drive where possible.

I noticed significant page rendering speed increase on the 2nd page load (after everything you pulled was cached)

the only text I changed was on the pagination (so that 1000's could fit in the allotted space)
