Doodlekit is now more Awesomer than ever
Last Saturday we finally deployed the latest Doodlekit release. So far I'm really happy with how things are going. Our signups have already quintupled, and everything is running smooth as usual.
Here's what I'm excited about.

New Editor - XStandard
If you've done any research into online WYSIWYG editors, you should know that XStandard is the cream of the crop. It spits out completely W3C compliant HTML, and uses styles instead of fonts. Since it's a browser plugin, and doesn't use the browsers built in content editor, it's a lot more stable and predictable.
Not only that, but we made it a lot better. The editor is not only aware of what color theme you're using, but also what you're editing. So if I start editing a notes box on my sidebar, the width of the editable area will be the same, and the background color will match.
I also built out all the backend services, so when you're inserting an image, you can browse your Doodlekit Photo Albums, or upload directly from your computer. Sorry to ramble, but I'm really psyched about this.
Dude, you don't even know.....
I almost crapped my pants when I checked the logs and saw 200+ requests per second. Then I did crap my pants when I started up memcached, and saw 300+ requests per second. And that's per process across 4 processes. More on that to come...
