Can someone please modify reality so that days consist of 48 hours instead of 24? Thanks! (or maybe some day Modafinil will be declared 100% safe w/out side effects and i'll only have to sleep 8 hours out of every 48, haha)
Where does all of my time go? I get up, go to work, come home, sleep, get up, go to work... On occasion I have some time to read, program, play games.
I managed to actually have a weekend. TWO DAYS without doing anything but messing around on the computer, playing GTA3, and reading The Stand (the uncut version). I did manage to get PostgreSQL / AOLServer and OpenACS playing nicely on my iMac at the office. (Gosh it's nice to have Mac & unix together in one machine so I can remotely login and get stuff done) I had to tweak the sysctl settings in the startup scripts to allow programs to use more than 4MB of shared memory (this made PostgreSQL much happier). I managed to get AOLServer 3.3.1ad13 all setup and such. And I managed to get OpenACS cvs (4.6 beta?) up and running to. But I'm not sure what to think of it yet. It's a neat system, but it's way complex. AOLserver is an incredible webserver.
My only issue with it all is performance. AOLServer itself manages about 560 pages per second with a static html document of 8KB. I benchmarked that using 'ab' from another machine on the LAN. I think I had to set AOLServer to startup 200 threads and keep constantly alive. I don't know what the default is, but I used that and got about 5 hits / second with OpenACS. I tried running it with 50 threads and got about 1 hit per second. I think that was killing the CPU though. ;) Interestingly enough, when I started AOLServer with OpenACS and 200 threads, it was the first time I got my load avg over 100 (700Mhz iMac G4 w/768MB ram). Fun!
