Probably not useful for this list, but I'm actually curious about what 
.NET (or other Win32/Win64 technology) installations are out there that 
are large. Myspace is the only non-MS one I know about, and they are 
essentially a case study for why you don't want to use Win32 for a 
large-scale website.

Feel free to respond to me off-list.

On topic, it really doesn't matter what technology you're using, 
memcached's role is the same. .NET should benefit from using it just as 
well as (e.g.) PHP.
