1. Stop using apache
digg Although apache is great for websites with under 10 visitors per day, for a big site like digg it is the worst server software you can choose. Many sites with the same amount of traffic are using lighttpd. It is safe, easy to use and about 100 times faster then apache.

2. Get more servers
Most of the time more does not equal better, but I guess with the amount of money you guys are making, you can easily afford to buy some new hardware. This should help you guys to spread the load.

3. Enough with the 1000 javascript/css includes
Seriously, how many files does it take for only the main page to work? 15! Can you believe this? 15 files being included every time someone visits the main page. 1000 visitors equals 15000 extra requests on the server.

No more room for your applications on your iPhone or iPod Touch?

Running out of space to place all those Applications you've downloaded and tried out on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Instead of using the small OS Partition which is where all the applications are saved, you can use the Media partition instead and continue on the installing spree.

Microsoft backports Vista features for new Windows XP SP3 beta

Microsoft knows that XP will still be alive on desktops for the next 2-3 years before hardware will be put in place to utilize Vista. Therefore they have made available some of the features within Vista, in a new service pack for XP. At this point, Vista is really buggy and crashes often. I've even reverted back to XP after continued nightmares with Vista. I hope the new service for Vista brings some stability to the operating system that was originally slated to replace XP, but hasn't done so quite yet.
