Ok, I am on vacation, so if you expect minute-by-minute reports of the universe, you will have to look elsewhere.
I will continue to post on topics of note and interest…provided I don’t get sucked out to sea on Cape Cod tomorrow.
Feedster is exhibiting some truly unique behaviour.
Last time I heard that there was an issue with drive redundancy in their SAN. But twice in 2 weeks?

I married my husband with the awesome heart and the big TV and the area rug, I also happened to marry into the largest font collection on earth. Make sure you marry someone who comes with fonts.
Thanks for this QoTD, dooce.
Ok, I got through the neuro-chemical wall by doing some coding. It’s weird, but intense mental activity seems to give me enough of a boost for the meds to start working again.
I created two new graphs for GrabPERF. The performance of the Multi-Test Hourly chart is hideous, mainly because my 6 year-old writes better code than I do. What was the only solution I could come up with? A loop within a loop, with each inner loop running a SQL query that returns exactly 1 row of data, if there is data.
I got sucked into reading dooce for the first time. Got a question: does Heather every smile?
Back to your regularly scheduled Web performance rant later. Off to try and optimize some inner-looping madness.
Oh, and be patient. Unlike Google, my creaky server with it’s failing drives takes a while to generate the data.

You have to wonder about the resiliemcy of the human mind sometime; apparently as quickly as one dives into a deep funk, you get to bounce off the floor….

Effective immediately, The Newest Industry is on hiatus.
Most readers are not aware that for most of my life, I have fought a constant battle with depression. Thankfully, my symptoms can be effectively moderated and controlled through medication…most of the time.
Right now, for a variety of reasons I am not comfortable getting into, I am losing the battle with my illness. The canvas is blank, and so is my mind.
For those who say there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, I just found out that mine happens to be on front of a high-speed train coming toward me. And when I reach these depths, no amount of happy, motivational, power-of-positive-thinking drivel can bring me back quickly or easily.
My life has to change. I don’t know how yet, but when I come back, it will be because something has changed.
Thank you for dropping by; see you on the other side.

To add to my increasing summer of discontent, I had to replace the other two tires on the purple bus today.
And Apple releases two new iBooks. [here]

BlogPulse has improved, but it is still a very relative improvement.
Still no word from anyone on the BlogPulse team about the challenges they are facing.
