comment Best practice for uploading large file, previewing, and editing before saving to database?
2. Would using a memcached store be much advantageous over just using a host cache (like Session or Cache in IIS+ASPNET)? They're both going to be stored in RAM right?

1. I agree that offloading to a secondary data store could work well, and would simplify maintenance on the primary database.

If memory capacity is a primary concern, maybe use compression to store the in-memory data? This would require a de/re-compression of the data on each page request, but gzip is already used for webpage compression so overhead should be managable. Even if not, a 2 or 3 page uncompressed buffer should offer an acceptable tradeoff. With compression, it should be no problem to store the data in memory for the duration of the user session or until they explicitly confirm/cancel it.

comment PowerShell idiom to test for existence of a command?
I think that saying the idiomatic way to do things in PowerShell is the "posh way" is just too good. Definitely using that!
