Presentation done. Went well, except I forgot to show the final slide w/ the URL to the slides, so I got two dozen requests regarding whether or not the slides would be online, and where.




Oh, and I met dormando finally! Years and years after hiring him. (he was LJ's first sysadmin) Also here: James from Wikipedia (now working for _______), CJ Collier, Peter Z, Konstantine, Brian Aker, Chromatic, ....

Anyone make a video

Brad, I don't suppose you would know if anyone made a video tape of your presentation?

I was actually up in line to come say hello, but unfortunately had to go answer a phone call. Damn work!

I think I owe you a beer for missing the Mexico trip...

I'm down in Ballroom E right now, in the Friendster session. Back row, left side. Green tshirt, blue jeans, rather beaten dell laptop :)

And, look, a picture! Granted, a picture from 4 years ago, but a picture nonetheless!

where's the daemon used for web logging ?

Brad, Slide 33 mentions that the mod_perl logging handler uses a specialized daemon which maintains persistent connections to mysql. Is this in some CVS tree ?

Re: where's the daemon used for web logging ?

It's a ugly quick hack. I'll release it perhaps when I clean it up?

Jimbo outed me at the Wikipedia presentation. The missing word is MySQL.:) I start on 2 May so I was able to answer the audience question "InnoDB or MyISAM" by saying something like "if you care about reliability and availability use InnoDB and forget that MyISAM exists because of the slower and less reliable MyISAM repairs after failures".:) Actually, that was a noticeable pattern from any presentations and I mentioned it to Monty, who seemed happy enough.

master / master ?


i don't really see the different between your master/master setup and master/slave setup. in both case, you need to promote a slave to be master when failover happens. i do know that you only read/write to the master and slave repl from it.

manually doing the master / slave failover switch is bit of painful and i am looking for easier solution.
