Working on Calendar

So you may have asked yourself - why is the calendar on this site so slow to load?

Well, I've asked myself that a lot - like every time I load the calendar page. The answer is basically that the code we're using for the calendar page is pretty inefficient and slow - it has a lot of features, most of which we don't actually use, but it's REALLY slow due to a whole lot of data manipulation that happens when you display the page.  We do not actually use most of those features on the site, but it's part of the Drupal distribution we are using for the site.

The upshot is that I'm working on this, and replacing the full month calendar with a new faster version based on some more streamlined code that is more appropriate for a with with so many events.  Look for a faster calendar some time next week.  I hope.
