How did you scale down reddit's source code? Is it a bandwidth hog?

I'm not the guy to ask. To be honest I don't think there was a scaling down at all, which is probably the root of our technical problems. No one involved really had any business running a site as complex as this.

When we were making raddit, we looked into using reddit's source code and it was a huge dead end. That code is bloated as fuck.
