A number of people have emailed or left comments frustrated by the speed of pastebin. Over the past few months I’ve spent the odd ten minutes here and there tweaking it in the face of ever-increasing load. It’s clear the software just isn’t up to the task anymore, which was particularly evidenced by a recent slashdotting.
Over the next few days I’m rewriting the internals to be much faster, and hopefully release it over the weekend.
Wish me luck!
