    It has been like that over a week. How about a THWAAAACCKKK on the side of the head of twitter

    It’s bad engineering done by kids with no experience trying to cram 2 new features into code that already consumes 511 of the available 512 bytes of code in a 68HC11. Or at least that’s what this crotchety old programmer thinks.

    The last time I did the math, twitter had an aggregate flow rate somewhere around 60k / second. Let’s presume growth, and say it’s now 100k/second. I’ve got a stack of old PCs in my office, and I’d be willing to bet cold hard cash that I could take 10 of them, and make them into a cluster capable of handling the full tweet load.

    Twitter is the Chicago Cubs of networking services. It’ll be better, just wait until next year! 8)

    By the way.. this is what Cold Hard Cash really looks like:

    Not some namby-pampy soon to be hyperinflated greenback.
