Bleh. Apparently not caring what you do on other sites or even requiring any personal information isn't good enough for the state of Confusion^WCalifornia, so we have a shiny, new, temporary Privacy Policy posted on every page and linked at the top of the nav bar.

If you feel like prettying the language, layout, or whatever up before I get around to it, feel free to do so and submit a pull request.

    If you've ever done live maintenance, that's just part of the job. Otherwise you end up spending so much time on synching with the repo that the job doesn't get done.

    But here's the thing - if you don't trust him, why are you here? And what do you base your skepticism on? Anything specific, or just the "everyone lies" thing?

    Go back to taking care of your eyesight, don't waste time on other people's arguments if you're too lazy or uninformed to properly participate.

      I've had to recompile c code remotely on a FreeBSD server multiple times while it was getting 100-800 hits a second. I know what it's like with a server written entirely in c with loadable modules also written in c, no easy peas scripting language. And if I got it wrong it meant a trip 500 miles away for a manual reinstall on the crashed server because (that's what I was told - because).

        I'm just enjoying myself a day off of church work. I had to pull several muscles to score it, so I plan on making the most of it by doing as little as possible.

        On top of which, which branch production servers currently match up precisely with (dated release? a couple hotfixes beyond? emergency rollbacks? something usefully cosmetic but a dirt simple merge?) is not a fixed value in the real world.
