It's a duck pond.
Why aren't there any ducks?
I don't know. There's never any ducks.
Then how do you know it's a duck pond?

This blog now appears at ai.mu.nu. Of course, it still appears at ambientirony.mu.nu and even at ambientirony.com.
I changed the default domain because there are an increasing number of blogs filtering referrers on the word "ambien". Which sucks.
So, I have this little program that converts Movable Type blogs, singly or en masse, into Minx blogs.* And I am trying out various queries to see how the database performs when it is actually using the indexes, and now and then adding a new index.
One of the indexes I added was on the number of comments on posts, so you can quickly see where the action is (or was). And the number one post, with 1633 comments, can be found here. I'm surprised the poor system survived.
MySQL takes 0.11 seconds to bring up those comments the first time; 0.03 seconds after they've been cached in memory. Whether this is a worthwhile achievement or not I will leave to Madfish's readers to decide.
* Not that I am working on Minx.

How long has that stupid picture been sitting there anyway? Two weeks now?
Note to self: WHM account transfer function trashes symbolic links.

And say "I'm off to Sleepy Bobo's".
