Not to mention, there is STILL a delay when it loads (every time I try
to go to the admin side) while I wait for it to try and update. It
always did annoy me that I had to wait 5-10 seconds every time I went in
just to wait for something I never read refresh.
Something to forward to the post screen would be nice, or the option to
turn it off. What about doing it after it loads like the pings do when
posting in 2.0? Show the cached feed still when you log in and once the
page is loaded it can check for the feeds and update them so next time
you hit the dashboard its up to date?
Yes, it won't be up to date the first time you log in after 2 weeks, but
how many people actually read it anyway? What percentage of hits do the
people listed on planet get from somebody's dashboard?
