More Optimisations

I have been waiting for this moment. Fortunately one of our very first client had big DB (80 000 records) with different relations. That helped us to optimise Cobalt a lot. But I knew that there may be problem with many categories. And I did not have a chance to test in real environment.

Recently we got one client with 3 000 of them. And he had 11s page load time. The query that caused this delay was 7.8s. By the end of the optimisation it was 0.019s. Not bad. And now we know that a lot of categories is not a problem for Cobalt :)

And I believe that Cobalt still may accept more challenges like that.
