Rant

Dear IGN

Please find the twat that reviewed Pillars of Eternity for you and throw him off a cliff.

Thanks.

Dear everyone not IGN: Never read IGN.  They employ twats.

1 I think you have runaway processes again. Could you please check?

2 Something similar, yes.  Fixed now, and since it's happened twice, looking for the cause.

3 Sorry about that - please pop me an email if you ever have problems getting to your blog.  I check on things pretty often, of course, but an email will get to me right away,.

4 Ah, found the problem - the page cache was full.  That's never happened before.
That probably means that it's not expiring correctly, but I've fixed it quickly by doubling the available memory.

Wilco.

6 Found the underlying problem.


The page cache (based on Redis) is working as it should.  I *also* have per IP-address statistics tracked in Redis.  That's what ran out of room.  There's some junk in there from people using fake HTTP headers as an attack vector, but that's actually only about 400 out of 1.5 million.  Mostly it's good data.

We'll be  fine for months with the change I just made - it took 5 months to get to this point - but I'll those stats off to MongoDB so that it won't happen again.

7 I'll move those stats off to MongoDB, that is.

8 Hm.  So this is why I couldn't get to mu/mee.nu sites earlier?  Cool cool... it gave me a chance to take a nap, instead of blogging.  Fair tradeoff.  :-)

Thanks for fixing, Boss.

Regarding IGN: I agree with you, but what's wrong with the review?  He gave it a 9.0, and if anything, that feels maybe a touch high to me but I'm still in the prologue (that wind nearly got me!).

9 Yep.  Also, DON'T READ THE REVIEW!!!!

10 Ahh, spoilerriffic?

11 Yep.  I don't know how much it actually matters to the game, but even telling us that an event doesn't matter is a spoiler.

Really, it's the first thing they teach you in game reviewer school.  I guess the only reviews I'll check from now on will be Zero Punctuation.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
