the power of cdns

One of the people behind 4chan (NSFW site, in general) writes about small advantages adding up in use of a CDN.

A CDN is a "content delivery network", often a place to put "write once, read many" static content. We had found similar advantages to switching to a CDN at Alleyoop-- the way the cookies don't get sent is very helpful in reducing bandwidth. (And converting the embedded image references in the html to the new location was an awesome Perl task for me...)
