open the floodgates

yikes, if i thought the traffic from yahoo! to on sunday was noteworthy, i hadn't fully thought through the implications of people getting to work on monday and opening their email of the picks. (and perhaps that's when the weekly picks email is sent?)

one fortunate thing is that i had recently optimized the main query for generating the home page for non-registered-users. unfortunately, that isn't the case for registered users, so it looks like they're bearing the brunt of the traffic spike's impact on performance.
