We have this custom in our office. Every now and then, someone will exclaim “It’s the X song!” for some value of X, while a song with appropriate lyrics is playing.
For example, Daniel Bedingfield’s I Gotta Get Thru This would almost certainly elicit an “It’s the Documentation At The End song!”. Almost certainly. If that song somehow managed to stay on long enough to reach the chorus.
Today, Bliss’s Monitor Access came on. Arguably, it’s the Refactoring song, because of the “Light that motherfucker up”. But when it occurred to me to name the song, it was in the “I know you gonna dig this” loop.
More specifically, it was in the “Dig dig dig dig” build up. So I called out “It’s the Node.js song!”. See, I’ve been punting node.js hard, and have been saying peeps will dig it. Sadly no dice, because as I said it, the track transitioned into the “this this this” bridge. So my timing was poor.
Rory’s was not. Without a moment’s hesitation, he asked “Because of this?”
- Surely there’s a worthwhile replacement for google reader?
- spook: conversation. it’s awesome
- there actually aren’t that many because Google reader cornered the market so well
- the existing ones are certainly shaping up before sign-off day though
- sheldonh: where is it?
- that’s a shit name since it’s not googleable >:(
- * sheldonh weeps for the species.

andrelopesmrx asked: hi mate,I found a patch of yours, posted 2 years back. I have the very same problem, I want 12bits lenght vhids to keep them aligned with vlan ids. Did you face some side effect using it? I wonder why it was not merged to the branch. Any information you could give us is very welcome. Thanks in advance!
I’m pretty sure we backed it out, but I don’t remember whether that was because it crashed FreeBSD, or because it crashed adjacent switches. Sorry, I know that’s not very helpful. In the end, it was cheaper to give up and throw more firewall pairs at the problem.
