So who understands this?

Lloyd Hannesson has a solution for caching your blogrols (if you are using It's a little tricky and requires a PHP extension (Cache Lite) be installed on your server. If you can arrange that then you should be in business. ---Kevin Aylward

I do, but well, I wrote the script :)

Well, of course, you do, but you are not a Munuvian, are you?

notGeorge: Dasme would be THE ONE to ask... if you have a question. I understand it, but couldn't explain it as well as Dasme did. BTW, Wizbang Kevin is working on another fix as we speak.

Yep, Kevin from Wizbang and I were talking about possible solutions and came up with a decent idea. I wrote a script last night that is currently being tested. Once we can be sure that it is working i'll post it on my blog.

That script seems to work, and it's been tested with multiple blogrolls.

If I'm reading it right, what it means is that you can set up your blog (using the new script) to go to blogrolling and store itself a copy of your blogroll, which it will then put up on your page everytime the page is viewed. The big difference is the 'roll is loaded off your (MuNu's) server, not the one at Blogrolling. So if BR gets slowed down, or even crashes, you're blogroll will still be available from your own server. It'll be set to update itself automatically as long as BR is active, and if BR is down, it'll just keep showing it's most recent version until BR comes back up again.

There's another protentially really elegant blogrolling/RSS aggregator combination called Jaeger that would let us avoid dependance on Blogrolling's servers too. I've been playing with/pounding on it for about a week, and will be posting about it on Light & Dark in a day or so if anybody's interested.
