Our little (tiny really) chunk of the cloud experienced a few technical difficulties the past few weeks. Without gushing too much nerd your way, a software upgrade cause the system to run out of resources. (MySQL kept crashing.) But luckily I apparently know what I’m doing and was able to fix the problem by limiting the number of connections and server processes. Hopefully it’s fixed. It’s been working, so that’s a good sign.
I learned a few cool things about Linux the past few days. First, I learned that with 11 characters I can use my mouse in Vim. I learned that screen can require a password when reattaching. And I learned that Bash is much better than tcsh.
Things at work are great. (That’s where I learned a few of these things.) I also have learned that in a corporate environment you don’t always get the most up-to-date software, even if it’s free software. I also learned that my work email filters out gziped tar files, even if they are simply full of vim and bash configurations to help me figure out the settings I want.
Anyway, this is a boring post. Sorry
