  • fixed compilation issues with gcc
  • added mingw makefile
  • added support for 64bit DLLs
  • fixed compilation issue when using Vista SDK
  • fixed wrong checking of result from LoadLibrary for errors (issue #2)
  • minor code cleanup

Consistent Hashing

Just stumbled upon an article explaining the technique of “consistent hashing”. Something that helps in determining one of several horizontally scaled servers to use for a given (cache) key.

Nice read and something I didn’t hear of before:

Already thinking of where to use it… ;-)

This has been fixed (or better “added”) in the corresponding templates, so you can leave a short message for me pretty much everywhere now.

Oh, and please don’t use this to send spam to the world – your comments will be moderated anyway…
