Super cache!

No, it has nothing to do with tights and a cape, it’s actually a special plugin built to speed up blogs. The idea is for blogs to serve up a copy of popular web pages that get multiple hits in a short time. This saves the server work and helps the page load quicker. We hope you see a difference!

Users that are logged in do not get served cached pages, and new posts or blog changes should update the cached page version immediately. If you are browsing blogs without logging in and seem to be missing content updates, login to view the latest content or check back in a few minutes.
