Hi Jesse,

Allow me to point you to this:


That article shows how to make your app cache friendly.  Using an
external cache engine is probably the shortest path to caching on your
site, and as the article points out, it's quite easy to add to your
app.  Quite a bit easier, IMHO, than using memcache, etc.

Good Luck,
