cranky, tired. [Nov. 27th, 2000|10:14 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
i fell asleep on my bed at 6:15 or so. woke up about 9:30 or so. i'm cranky that livejournal is going slow.... the thing is, the throughput's higher than ever. in other words, the server's getting more done right now than it ever has before, but divided by the number of people using it, it appears to be slow.

the problem is all the new users. i'm thinking it'd be fun (and helpful) to just ban all new @aol.com users. they're nothin' but trouble anyway! ;-) or, to be even more elitist, i could also ban all @hotmail.com, and all other free email services. yup yup .... that'd be fun.

there'd probably be a group of people that'd be pissed off, ya think?
after i woke up I went to burger king and got dinner. tired still .... going to go to bed as soon as I finish my stupid physics homework. i skipped physics lab tonight... it was only a makeup one if you did crappy on a previous one.

Re: i heartily agree

Basically, modem users suck. While they're downloading pages at 5 Kb/s they usually tie up a process on the other ends, feeding it slowly. So, the solution is to setup a buffer in between your process and the client... either by setting Apache's SendBufferSize high, or setting up another apache vhost on a different port, and making your port 80 vhost just ProxyPass to that one, and putting the buffer there.

The SendBufferSize is cleaner, but it's not apparent to me so far which actually works better.
