chris2apeiros: no, i dont want to lose data structures in memory when the server goes down
apeirosmmap is memory mapped, no? sharing memory between apps? did I corrupt some of my memory?
actionapeiros looks up
apeiroslooks up
chris2mmap is memory<->file
it can be shared, but i didnt think of that
apeiros"mmap'ed shared memory is not persisted between application executions"
from wikipedia
doesn't sound like it would prevent you from data-loss on server crashes
chris2yes, please read it :)
you need to mmap to a file, not to shared memory
rikkusif you mmap to a file and your server goes down, what if it does so half way through a write? isn't your 'RAM' now corrupt?
gnufiedchris2, purple
shared memory is evil, ain't it?
chris2rikkus: yes
apeirosunless you have transactional file access
rikkusso... you've lost your 'data structure in memory'
chris2yes
apeiroszfs, zfs... all hail zfs...
rikkusntfs too
gnufiedhell nfs
apeirosya, but zfs will (hopefully) be in 10.5
gnufied:)
rikkusntfs in vista already does transactions
apeirosntfs is only writable (reliably) by m$
actiongnufied is not making any sense and he is not here to make sense
gnufiedis not making any sense and he is not here to make sense
apeirosand the word "reliably" is possibly a stretch even there...
rikkusdo you think ntfs is unreliable?
apeirosgnufied, as long as you have sense...
I think m$ is unreliable :)
gnufiedapeiros, fuck
I have a wierd problem. my JS works everywhere, except at my designer's browser. :(
apeirosIE?
gnufiedno, in FF
actionrikkus does a double take
rikkusdoes a double take
apeirosgnufied, well, ff has js debuggers
get one and figure it out
gnufiedapeiros, yeah firebug and surely, i have spent enough time with that.
it works at my FF, Opera. it works in his IE. it works in other collegues, FF & IE and it doesn't work in his FF. :)
rikkusPerhaps he has an extension which breaks it
if it works in everyone else's browser and he has the same version, that's the only thing that makes sense (assuming you did the obvious and tried with a clean profile)
