        Turns out creating varchar indexes on a 1,750,913 row table takes some time.

                @33mhz You’ll notice when the .net drops from the URL and you have to log in again :p

                    @pme @cgiffard It's the system New Zealand uses. The number of seats you get is proportional to the number of votes you get. Not some FPP horribleness :p @tomcat @snrkl @keita

                      @cgiffard @lukasros They don’t use Hack (the type checker) in production ;) I’ve submitted some patches [github.com] to HHVM. So everyone visiting Wikipedia also runs code I’ve written!

                        Whoa. 1 in 7 people in the entire world have used code I've written. <=> [photos.app.net]

                          Would be able to look at so many more jobs if I could relocate. Or if I was an Australian citizen. Just like last time :(

                            Manager is back on email for half a day and I’m looking at new jobs. Welp. Was planning on waiting out the rest of the year…

                                @cgiffard I think it’s because we’re taught to solve problems in an imperative manner from a young age, so the paradigm is harder to understand.
