Robert Deaton of SomethingUnpredictable.com (and I’m happy to say a JellyBarn contractor) has released a plugin called “no-ping-wait.” I am testing it with this post, and am excited about the possibility since my ping list is pretty huge.
I just wanted to also give kudos, personally, to Robert. That guy is absolutely amazing. I learn things from him every day I speak with him. His depth of knowledge, not only on PHP, but on the WordPress system as well, is amazing to say the least. Thanks for the help Robert.
Update: Holy cow that was fast! I love the No-Ping-Wait plugin!
