Fun situation: many (80+) servers are doing a lot of "ssh central_box 'some_quick_command'".

After a day of it, load was 250.

Decided to investigate. After 5 minutes of work, modified /etc/pam.d/ssh and changed line:

session    optional     pam_motd.so # [1]

to

session    optional     pam_motd.so noupdate # [1]

Result - load dropped to 2.5. Thank you #ubuntu

Interesting behind-the-scenes look at how Twitter uses Redis: http://bit.ly/1pm7PsV - 10K+ instances, 100TB+ of memory, and ~40M QPS! All of the timelines are stored in Redis.. and that's a lot of memory!

File under: Kids These Days!

This morning I made waffles with diced strawberry and bananas (sprinkled with granulated sugar to bring out the juice) on top, plus some maple syrup. I served this to my son, daughter, and her three friends who slept over last night.

My son ate all of his, but said he preferred no fruit. My daughter complained she didn't like bananas and avoided them. Her three friends? All three of them pushed the strawberry and bananas to the side of the plate and refused to eat them.

Who knew that eating fruit was so foreign to kids they won't even eat it with sugar and syrup on top?

Random pontificating from my son this morning: "XOR should be a word. When you say OR most people mean XOR. If someone says do you want cake or a cupcake you don't answer yes or they get mad at you."

Help rebuild (and grow) the Internet Archive!
You've heard about the fire that destroyed one of our thirty-two scanning centers last month. But here's what you may not have heard: the good news. An incredibly generous anonymous donor is helping us rebuild—and grow—by matching every donation made before 2014 three-to-one.

Really disappointed by the Aereo decision today. Does this mean it is illegal for me to set up an antenna that streams it's signal via the internet to my TV? That seems like something that should be legal, especially based on how current law was written. This seems like yet another decision where the Roberts court is ruling based on what some people think the law was meant to do rather than what it says.

I think as long as you don't charge yourself for that service, you will be fine.

Me: "WAT"

Found out this morning that someone at my company has been writing code in an editor they don't like because they weren't sure if it would be ok to spend $200 on something that they were more comfortable with. I forget how badly people are treated in this industry. #resettingexpectations

My daughter shoveled our driveway by herself for the first time today. She wanted to use the computer but her brother was on so I offered that if she shoveled the driveway I would kick him off. After shoveling about 25% she quit.

Then 30 minutes later she asked if I would give her a ride to her friends house if she finished; I said yes and she was done about 15 minutes later.

So I guess I am failing at this whole get girls involved in tech thing, but at least maybe I am teaching her to work to get the things she wants.

New Root Beer from a craft brewer in DC. It's a sweet root beer, with a very strong maple flavor, which gives it a rather unique taste among root beers.
