Where's Pixy Been?

Working.  At my day job, which just recently has also been my night job and weekend job.  Pulled about 100 hours of overtime in two weeks.

On the upside, I'd planned to spend some time working with CouchDB and Redis, and I did.

On the downside, I'd planned to use them for Minx, and I didn't get to do that.

On the upside, I got to do far more scalability testing than I would have otherwise.  (Shard CouchDB and Redis 100 ways?  Sure.  Scale out to 40 cores per server?  No problem.  Shovel in three billion records to see what breaks?  You got it.  Push 250,000 updates per second, sustained for days on end?  Of course.  Build a 300GB LRU cache of sorted sets?  Certainly.)

On the downside, I'm exhausted.

On the upside: Successful product launch.  And I do get paid for the overtime.

1 Remind me to never complain about forty hours of overtime in two weeks again.
