At the moment we keep the user's FAS name in memcached but this is not working so well and quite ofte we're stuck or very slow.
What we could do is add a new table or a new field in the candidate table, to store locally the FAS name.
This way, when we add/edit candidates, we would query FAS for their name, store it locally and forget about memcached.
This has been fixed a while back :)
