Why is this so complicated?
If you are signed up for desktop notifications you can click on that link on your desktop and go directly to the post.
You can also go to Twitter on your desktop for the direct link.

Otherwise, you need to wait a few minutes.

Just want to chime in here and let y'all know that I think the new site is amazing.
More specifically, I like the responsiveness on mobile, fading expired deals, and the ability to respond to a specific comment.
As both a consumer and a developer, I appreciate the redesign, and of course the work that went into it.

Not sure if you mean this serious, or just pulling my leg.

Serious.
If you have the link (Via desktop notifications, Twitter, SMS, FB, etc) then you'll see the deal a few minutes sooner than it will show up on DDMS.

Also sooner than RSS
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

You're making it sound like it's a terrible request.
One thing I know is if there's a hot flight deal I'm probably running to my computer to book it.
And I'm not subscribed to desktop notifications, don't want to be, and doubt even 5% of your readers are subscribed to notifications.

It's not terrible, it's just not possible with the caching system in place that is needed to keep the site up under heavy traffic spikes.
You can always go to Twitter.com/DansDeals if you don't want to wait the few minutes until the cache clears.

The old site didn't have the caching problem/system?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
