    @cgiffard nah, iOS 9. Is probably because I just opened it and usually read around this time. You lose it if you turn off Siri Suggestions in Spotlight Search settings.

      @cgiffard heh, now Siri's suggesting it to me. Image [photos.app.net]

        @cgiffard I dunno, it’s bed time in about 45 minutes and I need to fit a shower in :p Guess I should transfer for it to my phone so I can actually read it.

          @cgiffard heh, that’s actually been sitting in my downloads folder for me to read for some time now…

            @cgiffard it’s something that I’ve seen FB push a lot with people asking about how to make HHVM faster: profile first so you actually know what’s slow.

              @cgiffard ugh, premature optimisation is so annoying. There’s been cases where we’ve pulled N+1 fetches into pre-fetching outside the loop. Had to explain to another dev why we don’t always do that, especially when we know the limit on N is tiny.

                @cgiffard even if it’s just to get an idea on how different people have approached the problem. Need to do your best to avoid echo-chamber mentalities.

                  @cgiffard I get that there’s cases for building things in-house, but at least do it properly!
                  simon_w
                    @cgiffard internally, we’re getting to the point where we need a custom queue (mostly because of the edge-case interactions between certain jobs), but no way are we going to do that without planning and research.
                    simon_w
                      @cgiffard that’s terrible :( It’s not like having a job queue that’s horizontally scalable is difficult or anything either.

                        @cgiffard ugh, I’ve got to do that. To make it worse, it’s the core part of our business and the most complicated :( (award interpretation, looks like it was written in a weekend. Is >20k lines in a single class)

                          @cgiffard how long you in town for?

                            Also, my old 5s is so tiny now.

                              Turns out switching to a 6s+ was rather easy. A little big to always use one-handed, but works well for me.

                                No longer overdue on my student loan repayments :D (Until April next year, I suppose)

                                  Maybe they shouldn’t have hit ctrl-z on the server processes. #CensusFail

                                    @cgiffard @jws Yeah, the Australian senate system is better than the house of reps. Basically if you’re in a safe seat (e.g. the ACT, most of the US from my understanding), does voting against the incumbent matter?
                                    simon_w
                                      @cgiffard @jws you need a more than that. You also need to change to a system where the vote selects multiple people, not just a single person. Until that happens, where you vote is just as important as who you vote for.

                                        Ah, dit/dat makes removing dead HTML so much easier :)

                                          @keita it wasn’t enjoyable before and still isn’t enjoyable now?
