"Looking for good things about you is like looking for a needle, in a pile of needles, on Planet Needle." not the best pickup line ever, but easily transferable to other more useulf situations - "looking for bugs in flickr, etc etc".

gah. f was down for 5 hours after a routine database modification revealed massive innodb corruption which had somehow replicated to the slave. after splitting the cluster, our last backup was nine days old and a few million records short. eek. so a painstaking search and destroy for bad records was conducted. stupid mysql.

28th October, 9:36 am

the kottke piece has predictably descended into bitching: "Note that of the 58 mysql databases I've put up, only 5 required munging". woah - i'm overwhelmed by your experience! ;) at least webb gets it right: "Cal Henderson talks like he normally talks, and sparks fury and righteous anger. Highly entertaining."

this is amazing - visualising delicious tags with size and position [demo]. i wonder if the positioning means anything, or if it's just a randomisation to make the zeitgeist look more interesting.

4th July, 12:50 am

i'm starting to get quite into flickr as a product (rather than just an api experiment and a time-sink). the calendar views are fucking awesome.
