Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Re: Faster MT Rebuilds

Is it really faster?

Re: Faster MT Rebuilds

I’d say yes, but since I wrote it I’m not sure if you’d believe me. For me it was a drastic improvement because I have feeds, simple comments, and other advanced MT features all of which effect rebuilding in some way. I had a 300-400% speed improvement. Of technical note is that my site is running on a Dell dual processor 1GHz server running IIS if that helps.

Re: Faster MT Rebuilds

Well, this machine is a 466MHz single-processor G4 running Apache. I can’t say the improvement has been that dramatic. But anything that reduces unnecessary rebuilds is a win for me (since this machine is also my desktop).
