In the sharing vein (which, kids, you should never do. Remember, sharing veins is for foreigners and weirdos. If you share veins, the terrorists have already won! Ok, you can ignore me now.), I’ve rediscovered iTunes radio tuner feature, and am totally addicted to Groove Salad. It’s trancey, groovy and conducive to half-awake coding.
In good work news, my new LogCrunching machine should be here in the next week or so. It will be berry berry nice:
- Dual Xeon 1.7ghz
- 1gb Rambus RAM
- 2 36gb SCSI hard drive
- nVidia Quadro2 video card w/ 64 mb
- dual NICS
- RedHat 7.2
- Sweet free mouse pad
What will I be doing with this machine? I’ll be crunching lots of files and extracting numbers from them like a SuperJuicer. How? I can’t post the code or anything, but I’ll be using AOLserver because it does a great job of scheduling jobs and I already know it. I’ll use Postgres to dump the numbers into. It will be lots and lots of fun and give me my desktop machine back so I don’t have to run the numbers I run now on it. A winner all around.
