memcached talk tonight, ManadLUG

I have a talk scheduled tonight, for anyone who's in the Southern New Hampshire area (or greater Northern New England area):

I'll be going over a number of things, time permitting:

* memcached (in general)
* NorthScale's memcached Amazon Machine Images and Virtual Appliance
* moxi - memcached proxy
* memcached Functions for MySQL

I'll run a couple demonstrations with each, first simple memcached usage, then using two memcached instances through moxi, then I'll throw in using them with the UDFs.

I intend to see if the Boston MySQL Users Group would be interested in this talk soon as well.

* A front cache, L1 cache to avoid network hops
* Fire and forget SET (Like an async SET) this means "set a value, but don't wait to know if it …
