I'm building a Tagging system into VoidStar as a way of prototyping what I'll do on Ecademy. It's truning out nicely. Here's what I write about in terms of popular Tags.

Ecademy suffered terrible performance yesterday. It was largely caused by a single bad robot from become.com. So I've now put in long, long robots.txt file and today we're only using half the bandwidth. I've still got some more database tidy ups to do, specifically around avoiding a UNION query.
