Backend change on My.UserLand
- On 12/22/00 we changed the way the My.UserLand service list works.
Now we only write out services that have changed in the last 24
hours. It's updated at the end of each hourly scan, generally around
10 minutes past the hour.
We made this change because the service list was getting choked with
channels that aren't updating regularly.
We also optimized the aggregator so that if a channel hasn't updated
in a week, we only check once a day. This cut the number of channels
being scanned by a factor of 10. A worthwhile optimization.
