Do you ever feel like you spend all day swimming upstream against the incoming flood of email? I know people say "only check your e-mail twice a day" or otherwise limit it, however I'm literally spending all day actually handling/responding to the e-mails, so I'm not sure it would help.

Went to Christian's Birthday yesterday, catching up on chores and errands today. It's a good weekend! I wrote a blog post about the Mount Greylock ride: http://www.digitalsanctuary.com/blog/uncategorized/mount-greylock-ride-2011.html
After the fun we had during this year's Mount Washington group ride, we planned another ride, this time to Massachusetts' Mount Greylock. Mount Greylock is

Ran 25 minutes straight this morning, no pauses, no walking, no rests. On my way to the 5k goal.

How is it that no one seems to have made Redis failover easy via heartbeat and a Redis control script? So far all I've found are three equally hilarious solutions:

1) automated failover is too risky, you should just setup monitors that page you and you can do manual failover,
2) if you just write your own client you can build in monitoring, failover, and the required Redis control stuff, and
3) just wait for Redis cluster to be finished - it'll be awesome and solve all your problems.

There has to be someone out there who needed an automated failover solution for HA for Redis other than me.... Any ideas? (If I end up writing my own scripts, I will share them, but man it seems impossible I'm the first person with this need).

What would your perfect neighborhood be like? Physically, socially, everything. I'm working on small blog post on the topic. The short answer for me is a mixture of Eureka, a Zen Monastary, and the Kinetik music festival.

I like the layout of those alpine ski villages like at the bottom of Whistler/Blackcomb. Walking distance to all the pubs, restaurants and grocery stores. Something like that with mixed use areas. Sub-urban but with an urban feel.

If you were going to buy a used car, to drive for 12 months only, what would it be?

Having worked for years as an architect at ATG, my primary focus is ATG. I have experience working on some of the largest eCommerce websites in the world. I also build web applications using JBoss as well as technologies such as Seam, EJB3, Hibernate, and JSF.
