beach, distributed cache daemon

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. :-)
