Hi folks, I'm building a notification system....and I don't want to add
another DB query to the system....so my idea is to save notifications as a
file in a folder, and the just read and process "the files" ....
so the name of the file would contain the notification data.... i wouldn't
have to read each file, just the list of files in the folder.
hoping to save some network traffic that way.
am I gonna regret this?...hit some kind of OS bottleneck?..... anybody have
any ideas why this would be a bad idea?
we build for all 3 desktop platforms.
Thanks for any thoughts.
