Tick the "This is a minor edit" box when you are editing a page if you have not added any content (e.g. if you were fixing a spelling mistake).
What I intend to do about it:
I will try turning on HTML caching when I get home tonight. This may create occasional race conditions (if someone saves a page they have been editing just as you are downloading it to read, your download will abort partway through and you will have to hit "reload" in your browser to get the entire page, which is why it is currently off.
In the long term, I will try and dig up more memory for our webserver.
What type of memory do you need? I have a spare 512MB 133MHz dimm lying around somewhere... -qqzm
*sigh* currently, it's running on an HP Omnibook 900b. It has 64Mb soldered in, and has an expansion slot that can take a single SODIMM, up to 256Mb in size. I'd be astonished if anyone had one around. Thanks for the offer, though :) - MoonShadow
