  • i am new be nice to me
  • Tasks:
    • Assimilate
    • Figure out what the requirements are for deployment

A magnetic head would severely infringe on the integrity of my computing work; I'd need to wear a tinfoil cap to protect the world from my head. That would still probably be less disruptive than constantly saying Tuck It In.


  • killed all the [need:livepages] bugs
  • caching template fragments to avoid object deserialization
  • htmlpurified fields
  • figuring out how to run zamboni with or without /z
  • themes pages
  • now: working on the homepage

      • (Tuck it in) triage meeting this week with IT & Metrics
    • (Tuck it in) Targeting NFS replacement with HBase for 1.6
      • (Tuck it in) HBase API is autogenerated using Python 2.1 coding style, Java doc style, stone knives and bear skins
      • (Tuck it in) bridge code provided by Metrics is without unittests
        • (Tuck it in) writing them now - very tedious
        • (Tuck it in) many inefficient functions
        • (Tuck it in) many functions with ambiguous or awkward semantics

    • (Tuck it in) physical therapy is brutal
  • after having tried "tuck it in" (and having no clue as to what it means), I'll choose the magnetic head...


  • SUMO
    • 1.5.1 live
    • 1.5.2 nearly cooked

    • Working on a blog post on SUMO build processes
    • User migration plan

  • Threat of slapping, meh. But I do see where a magnetic head would come in handy for screwing with data. Can I have an induction coil so I can send out EMPs?



  • AMO
    • Performed some load testing on stats CSVs. Zamboni scored 3-5 times more requests per second that equivalent Remora requests. Superior caching is key here.
    • Working on adding automated thank-you notes to contributions.
  • I'll take the magnetic head and a metallic cowboy hat.



  • Getting my coding wordpress hats on, building the Webdev blog: Homepage * Page/Post design

  • bonus, since I have it: video of my friend getting tazed yesterday. That's only a couple seconds, in real life it'd probably be closer to 10-15
