Bug fixes & nightmares

This just happened. I am working on clearing my mail box, when I got a repro for a high CPU load from a user.

Spent an hour trying to figure out what is going on. Found that the problem is something with map/reduce under extreme load.

Couldn’t figure it out. Went to bed depressed after midnight.

Got up at 4 AM, sat down on the same problem. Solved it (root cause, that @ayende guy doing O(N Scary) stuff) in under 15 minutes.

Now I need to figure out what to do with the rest of the night.

Also, currently in Denmark (Copenhagen) and it is bloody cold out here. This is what I look like when I am cold:

I've found that going to the toilet often helps in clearing up stuff :)

You are clearly using too many wrappers.

I long for the day where I finally realize the greatness of "coming back later" such that my work time reduces once more. This has happened to me quite a few times as well and afterwards I get angry for not coming back later - faster. If you hit a wall, stop hitting it again and again - come back later.

I live in Denmark, born here.

Awful place, don't ever think about staying here for longer periods.

Dude - we like it cold here in Denmark. Look at it as a way to keep the computers at a steady temperature :D
