Exams, tests and vivas all knocking on my doors together; there are lots of them.

Will continue working in small bits till 7th May.

Right now on working on a bug https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=31269 .It’s interesting to work on bugs with some votes, so you know you made something useful to someone.

Thanks to Yuvipanda for  reminding me of Invalidating Cache, Possible solutions are

  1. expiry time (easy)
  2. dependency check ( eg. some new properties are added so we mark the cache of Special:Properties as invalid )

For once I have used memcache , which in absence of it will use objectcache. Let’s see if Markus and Jeroen have any suggestions. We can roll back easily, however this serves our purpose and is working 🙂
