MANIAC

There's so much about this tv show that I enjoyed. The 1980s futurism, the fact they didn't force a love interest, how every device talks or has music, even the fact that they added a bus terminal to the Brooklyn...

Why are you hosting your own Redis?

Someone asked me on a mailing list if I worry about reaching my team’s limit in our ability to manage Redis. I wrote a bit about why I think our architecture helps mitigate that risk. I’m not sure I really...
