Additionally, we had to ensure requests didn’t swamp the server, bottleneck throughout the network, or cause the client machine’s CPU or RAM to thrash. We found that caching data in local tables, combined with conservative usage of resources on the server, network and local machine, provided the best user experience.

Having grown in recognition and participation every year since, in 2010( http://www.btscene.com/search/term/2010/cat/0/ ) we truly began to make deep inroads into the academy.
