drives me absolutely up the wall!!!
Basically, all I do all day is review slide decks. Day after day after day. (The paperclip icon in Thunderbird makes my heart race.) Anyway, today I'm walking through yet another slide deck when I get to a slide that starts out like this:
Apache Specific Tuning
There's no further information! That's the end! Really!
/dev/tcp is ROTFL thinking about that ListenBacklog directive. The swapper is looking for some extra volumes. fork() and kill() and exit() are trying to get a room at the beach for the weekend.
It started to feel like I had held a match in my hand way too long as I started typing a furious response (which I had to delete). I tried a slightly more tactful approach and had to delete that too. After walking around the house five or ten times, I came back in and responded with a suggestion that I could cover that material properly at the Web Stack Deep Dive session at CommunityOne West in San Francisco next Wednesday. He agreed. Wish me luck!
2010 Update: I looked for the presentation recently and couldn't find it, so I uploaded it to this blog here.
