This Blog Is Not Dead!
At long last, I'm reviving this blog from dormancy. A lot has happened since my prior posting here. In no particular order:
- The arachna.com server is hosted on a new machine -- nice upgrade.
- I gave in: bought a Wii, fun has ensued.
- The blog software is upgraded (as of today, it's running on Roller 4.0).
- I've been leading a complete ground-up rewrite of Technorati's crawler (still rolling that out though).
- On the home front, we bought a new house and moved across town.
- Coached my kid's soccer team and ended up with a strong second place.
- I've purged a ton of spam from Technorati's index ("splogs"), work to keep the index coverage high while keeping the spam out is ongoing.
- I've been working fairly extensively with Amazon's infrastructure services.
- I did not get married but when you fill-in previously empty parts of your facebook profile, it looks like a a "new" status. Thanks for all the congratulations though :)
- A lot of new software investigations and implementations: thrift, hadoop, solr and so on.
... but wait, there's more! Things you may even care about ;)
But they'll wait for another post. It's nice to be back!
