where in Montana are you going?
i lived there for 18 years, just moved from to the Twin Cities about a year and a half ago.
if you can, i'd say try and hit Glacier, Yellowstone, and head down to Jackson Hole ;)
I live in Montana, but Brad's not gonna meet me *pouts*
You're not even going to be there.

Modest Mouse is good music.. I just have to get past the singer's voice.

I can't believe that this is how I find out you're cheating on me.. i.. i i'm crushed...
and after all the pizza I let you eat yesterday..:(
i'm so damaged now.
I hope you have a car charger for you cell phone, because, if you're phone is digital, and you're roaming on analog, it will eat up the battery like there is no tommorow (read: i can last 3 days if i'm always on the Sprint network, and only 24hrs if i'm roaming, and this is 100% idle. if i use it only for 15/30mins roaming it cuts my idle tiem down to like, 15 hrs or less.
I have a kyocera qcp-2035 and sprint CDMA service, but, when you get into chicago you'll have VStream again (i found that out by taking my einstein PCS phone down there and getting Access Denied messages when I tried to use it (I had no roaming because it's a prepaid phone and einstein is a very small locally owned company (IIRC)..

When I worked on the Eastside I used to make that drive every day to that 'secret' onramp to 520 right before the water, and then back again when I came home, to skip all the traffic on montlake and 23rd. It was always a nice way to start and end the day.
What are the dates for your trip?
June 24th - July 5th, approximately.
The return date isn't decided yet.
Hmmm, you're leaving about when I'm coming back from San Diego.
Guess I'll try to do some of the stuff I'll need to talk to you about before you leave.
Can you get me your X-LiveJournal and userinfo patches again, merged with the latest CVS?
The interest one, too, I guess.... but that one I'm having doubts about because LJ's current interest similiarity code was locking up the database too hard, so I had to take it down. If yours is slower, that's no good. :-/
Well, I could optimize it more, so it might become little faster rather than a little slower, but it's not going to be much faster than the old code.
"Locking up" the database? Why would it be holding any locks at all? Or do you just mean chewing lots of CPU?
Maybe this could go on the directory machine? Seems like a similar function.
Or maybe a replicated copy of the database without logtext and talktext could be made for highly-DB-intensive functions for paid users only? Interest-matching (and directory stuff, for that matter) would seem to be a sensible paid-user function, since it's something that would cost us serious cycles if a couple hundred thousand people could do it without chipping in.
My mistake... Whenever I say "locking up" the DB, I don't mean locked up as in a dead lock.
I mean it as in, "the request took longer than it should have, so the user reloaded and now two queries are processing, and that query requires temporary locks on a bunch of other tables, so other parts of the site are slow, so more people are reloading unnecessarily, and the server is doing tons of work and not finishing anything in under the maximum of 2 seconds that's allowed for web transactions."
Putting stuff like this on a replicated database is probably what I'm going to do.... we have two running now.
