andrewmuck: Glad you found my post abotu e- Gold on K5 useful. I think you'll find that most discussion on stories on K5 happens while they are in the voting queue, unless they make the front page. If they make one of the sections, they tend to stagnate, which is a pity.

Did some performance testing of our website using Microsoft's Web Application Stress tool. It's a pretty nice gizmo, and I higly recommend it. It will let you interactivly record a web browsing session, and let you play it back. It records all the headers, cookies, everything. It will also let you load a (IIS) log file, and play that as a session. It has options for the number of similtanous sessions, etc (it's free, too).

I'm creating a version of our web application to get data from a proprietry backend system, via COM/MTS objects to our Java Servlet/JSP website and application server, instead of just hitting a database.

I'm pretty happy - it seems pretty much as fast as the database version at the moment, from what I can tell.
