In the case of a really bogged down system with plenty of
piggy processes, I wonder if at some point it becomes acceptable to block on a allocation request for some given time, to see if anyone gives up their slot at the feeding line..
Oof. Spent yesterday cleaning bottles scavanged from the recycling center. I made a royal mess on the floor, dumping plenty of water on it accidently.. Oh well, I guess its clean(er) now that it was before. Someone suggested adding some baking soda to water for soaking bottles to loosen up the labels. But, the didn't really say how much to use. So, very scientifically, I dumped a few generous pinches into the pot that some bottles are currently soaking. We'll see if that does any good..
