I would not change either. But there are those here that are stating they need new hardware to work around this issue, and that they can not afford that. I was trying to be that voice of reason if that is the road/excuse they are choosing to go.
There seem to be acceptable workarounds, solid proposed workarounds, etc. I guess I am not getting it, JSON is just a string returned, yes, it can represent type of data, but it is still just a string. I can not see it being that huge a performance hit to massage that string a bit once you get ahold of it.

It's ridiculous to suggest a change in hardware (64 bit) or software (switch from PHP) to use Twitter's API. It's not like either of these are archaic. It sucks, sure, but it's silly to suggest such a "solution". BTW, I don't have this problem. I'm just trying to be the voice of reason.
