Fluff Overflow

Today I learned that the total number of tweets ever made on Twitter is roughly 4x the total number of posts ever made on Tumblr.

The number of database servers they have is far, far more than 4x, and ditto for the number of staff members working on their databases. Also keep in mind the average Tumblr post is quite a bit larger than a tweet.

Not knocking Twitter by any means — their work is extremely impressive, especially their open source contributions. But given visibility into the raw numbers, I’m especially proud of the database work my former teams (tiny, tiny teams!) accomplished at Tumblr.

Just realized this shoe bench is actually a sleeping ghost.
Maybe I should start a furniture ghosts blog.

This was every bit as good as the poster implies, and then some.
On a side note, nothing makes me angrier than unnecessary English language remakes of near-perfect foreign films.

I saw this on the big screen a couple years back, when I randomly had a few hours to kill on a solo trip to Boston. The cashier at the movie theater’s box office carded me, which was weird since I was 29 at the time and she looked to be about 16. Weirder still, an hour earlier I was carded at a liquor store, which then outright declined to sell me whiskey because my license was from out-of-state.
I guess I looked like a young hooligan that day. Very perplexing. I was in town to do a guest lecture at a Harvard computer science class.
Anyway, I greatly enjoyed The Raid despite the other shenanigans. But I was also day drunk, after successfully finding another liquor store that better understood the concept of government-issued identification being valid in multiple states.

IKEA Kivik sectional, 3 sections - $300 total
Can be disassembled for easier transportation.Cover is removable, and IKEA sells replacement covers in a variety of colors.

Moving sale! Anyone want to buy my old couch?
OG Tumblr employees may remember this as the same model of couch (albeit different color) that used to be in the conference room. If you&#8217;re wondering &#8220;which conference room we have like 30?!?&#8221; then nope, you won&#8217;t remember it. But it does comfortably seat a lot of people.
and no, I didn&#8217;t move to California. After 7 years in Brooklyn, I decided to move to Manhattan!
