Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog

Doesn't work that well when you have large parts of the traffic in session based pages with personalized data. I usually tend to do a twofold system: part of it dynamic and part of it statically rendered. High-load parts get served with statically rendered pages that are rerendered on data triggers or time triggers. It's a bit more work to build but a very nice solution if your data is mostly read and much less changed. Gives fully dynamic user experience with fully static server experience.
