If you're seeing this post, DNS has updated, and you've been directed to my new blog hosting. If I've done everything correctly, all of my previous posts are available here, at the same URLs.

I was inspired, this weekend, by off-list discussion of Luwak and by Guy Steele's talk How to Think about Parallel Programming—Not!. The two seemed naturally attracted, and thus I created the luwak_mr module.

Steven Frank agrees that 3-choice voting (like/shrug/dislike) is plenty. It's great to see someone else suggest it. Maybe we'll see it pop up in a few more places.

Unfortunately, I only found out this morning that some of you probably thought I had given up on BeerRiot. A month or so ago, I started hosting another domain on the same server, and thought I'd set up Yaws to handle that properly.

I just wanted to warn all those interested that admining will likely be slower than usual this weekend. I have to make a trip to the middle of nowhere. The only internet connection I'm likely to have will be in my hotel room. Even there, I'm rather worried that the connection will be so awful that I won't be able to handle anything but the simplest tasks.

Hello Rioters! I realized there was a lot more I wanted to say about developing BeerRiot, enjoying beer, and other things, none of which quite fit under the category "news." So, I've set up this blog as an outlet for those things.
