Things That Don't Scale: Entry #42

One of them, I am now reminded after running a bunch of timing tests, is reading large XML data using DOM. My only consolation is that I was not the one who decided that using DOM was a good idea.

I have suggested using a nice serial forward-only XML reader.

And that someone else can fix up the code to do so. :)
