I've never done that either...what about memcached....or that's already 
similar to what you are doing in memory?

We use it on one of our non-rails apps and it seems to do a good job of 
improving performance...I don't know or understand a huge amount about 
it, but thought I would bring it up.

Maybe one of the "Smarter Folks" would be able to help out with that.
