I’m not usually this bad about writing on my blog, but the past few weeks have been a little nuts. But it’s the ‘good’ kind of nuts.
I’m working on MySQL, memcached, database replication, optimizing SQL queries (and, in one case, the database schema itself), writing Python (using ctypes, and trying to parse the C-encrusted madness that is libpurple), setting up Subversion, performing security audits, troubleshooting PHP code, doing architecture design and scalability planning, and planning deployment of a bunch of stuff in this architecture to a grid solution.
Oh, and I have a magazine to run! I also gave a talk about Python for my local LOPSA chapter last night, and I’m refining some Linux administration training material because I have a client who might want me to do some on-site training in the next few months.
For those who aren’t regular readers, I’m also a new father, and I recently took over bottle-washing duties, which, it seems, can keep you busy pretty much full time all by itself!
I’m sure I’ve left multiple things out, but you get the idea. In the meantime I have a bunch of posts that are just waiting to fly off of my fingers. Gimme another week to get the December issue of Python Magazine out the door, and I’ll catch up with you then 🙂
