When the Blake Babies reunited recently, I was pretty excited. I even traveled to Atlanta to see them in concert! I was even more excited when they released their recent album, the aptly titled God Bless the Blake Babies.

When the Go-Go's reunited recently, I was pretty excited. I even traveled to Atlanta to see them in concert! I was even more excited when they released their recent album, the aptly titled God Bless the Go-Go's.

And to think that the only CD I have left in my old car is the Lemonheads album where there are songs with backup vocals by Juliana Hatfield (on several tracks) and Belinda Carlisle (on one track).

Naturally, this has nothing to do with software.

Stutter's first scalability test was Tuesday night, when Ipecac Records hosted a moderated chat with Greg Werckman. Over 200 people showed up, with over 150 online at the same time during one point in the chat. My blazingly-fast PII-400 Mhz handled the load reasonably well, once I upped the concurrent connection limit in MySQL from the default of 100 to a more comfortable 300. This was a mix of streaming and meta-refresh browsers (Macs are the only ones that require meta-refresh tags, because of weird connection handling).

P.S. If you live in the bay area, you can catch the Blake Babies tommorrow night at the GMA. You must be age 6 or older.
