On the extraction of a bit of unwanted dentition

I wanted to blog about this when I was feeling better.  Then I forgot.  So I’m doing it now.

Human beings, for better or for worse (usually for worse), are born with 32 adult teeth waiting in the wings.  This seems to be a bit of a mistake as most adult jaws are sized for just 28 teeth.  In my case, the two upper wisdom teeth were perfectly straight and right where they belonged (more or less) and content to sit there and play dumb.  The two lower ones weren’t so cooperative.  One ended up sideways (like the right side of this picture) and the other ended up upside-down, which I can’t even find an X-ray of online.  Both needed to come out and the time for that was two weeks ago, on a Friday afternoon.

Yayyy!!! I finally get to write some code!

Here’s a function that offsets batch runs by a number of seconds equal to the least significant digit of the year. So now in 2010, all batches run simultaneously. Next year, they will be 1 second apart. I have no idea why this is needed. It doesn’t seem to make any difference when batches are submitted – it’s batch work so they’re processed in sequence, according to task priority and available CPU cycles, regardless of when they arrived.

Good little sysadmin

I would consider myself a fairly competent UNIX sysadmin.  I make my share of boneheaded mistakes (like mounting one disk in a RAID-1 array read/write while the vendor CEs are trying to work on it), but I’ve never done anything so stupid that it’s actually cost a company money.
