If anyone was wondering why I’ve been missing from LJ (hello? LJ?) it’s because I’m down in VA again – absolutely flat out for one one my favorite customers. Thats “flat out,” like the awesome hillbilly racing game that technolope showed me. We’re standing up a shiny new 220TB disk array that can push 5GB/sec aggregate bandwidth – and simultaneously debugging a 2PB system that is supposed to mightily exceed that – but instead falls down a lot.
On the other hand, the mere – simple – effort of working hard at something I know how to do – this feels pretty good.
