beach, distributed cache daemon [May. 26th, 2003|02:02 am]

Went to the beach yesterday with my family and whitaker. The weather kicked ass. We flew kites, went boogey-boarding, played frisbee, and just generally enjoyed the sun.

I came back early to meet bostonsteamer for dinner and work with avva on the finishing touches of the C version of the memory cache thing I talked about earlier. It should be crazy-fast, using epoll (polling that doesn't suck; using the Linux 2.4 backport) via libevent, and Judy for the associative array. And it's recycling objects, avoiding mallocing. I can't wait to see it kick the Perl version's ass. I get so giddy when I get to work in C. Actually avva did all the hard work. I just get to review it and be picky about performance things. I think we're going live with it tonight.

Whitaker's still at the beach. He's found a new best friend in my 14 year old brother. :-)

I just wanted to point out my latest post to you and Whitaker. It's about the housewarming party I had told you about at Eriks'.

I may be up there for the Built to Spill concert that day... or I might see it in Portland a few days prior.

I'll keep your party in mind.
