It’s raining in San Francisco for what is probably the first time in 6 months although it seems like its been at least a year. I thought Texas summers were dry….
- 80 physical processors
- 139GB of RAM
- 91 hard drives with a combined total of over 15 terabytes of storage space
- 2000 database queries per second spread over 40 MySQL instances
- Over 8 million objects stored in memcached serving over 8000 requests per second
The best part is that this is just the beginning! There are many more exciting things to come. Next up — expansion to 2 additional datacenters in the US.
My laptop charger died today.
I now have a $2500 mousepad.
I guess I should really get it fixed 🙂
UPDATE: I contacted Apple last Friday and received my new charger in the mail today (Monday). Pretty fast!
Yesterday my Mac Mini let me know there was an available security update. Should be easy enough I thought so I clicked the “Install” button. After about 2 minutes of installing I received the error that the updated failed to install and had been moved to the trash. If I wanted to attempt to reinstall the update I should remove the package from the trash and click on it. Again, seems easy enough, so I tried.
During my trip to Texas last week, I discovered that the Rudy’s BBQ in New Braunfels has free wifi! BBQ and free Internet access — doesn’t get much better than that. Needless to say, I made multiple trips to Rudy’s during my visit.
When I am not in Texas, I get my fill of BBQ and free wifi at Memphis Minnie’s. If you’re ever in San Francisco, you should check it out.
