Well, this is getting pretty nasty.
NO! Not that --- not this conversation. This little bump in the road to release.
It becomes more apparent why things run slowly. For each page load, I think they check two tables that are both formatted in this fashion and put them in the appropriate objects, check the $_POST array to see if anything should be added to the second object (and hence, the second table), then write it to the DB and then go ahead and, y'know, display stuff. So, for one page load, two queries and two calls to urldecode() and unserialize(), plus one to serialize and urlencode() and another DB write ... just for this subsystem, which, the DB shows NO ONE is currently using....
I think I have the fellow's address. It's a good thing I think murder is an affront to God
I also really hope I can find a fairly elegant solution to this one or I may drop a few orders of magnitude in execution time just as he apparently did. :mad:
