Facebook in trouble?

Is it just me or is Facebook having real issues serving up content?

Have they finally found the limits of .php?

I've been noticing real issues in the page delivery times of page refreshes (and that was before they implemented their useless text chat application - what a waste of space).

You think with the $240 million microsoft gave them for 1.6% of the company they could spring for some more servers.

  1. I've read that facebook uses an insane number of mysql servers (150+).. apart from the fact that it's harder to cluster mysql instances, this seems to speak of underlying architectural issues - maybe some tables are badly designed and getting too big for example.
