Bram, thank you very much for pointing out pipelining. I have done some trials fetching a pair of pages from Advogato the CGI typically downloads. The sequential way needed 11-19 seconds whereas a persistent connection with pipelining needed 9-12 seconds.

Thus, pipelining is somewhat faster, but more important than that, as far as I have read it seems to me that technique is the one MyAdvogato should employ to fetch the pages. I'll implement it for the next release.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
