Informal Update

Started memory mapping in our OS kernel today.

Finished up an interesting Database Systems exercise.

Learned that 87,000 records can create the need for 160 M of heap space in the JVM, and that where I work, that’s too much. Later found that a query with some joins would accomplish the same thing, leaving the memory footprint in the database tier and not the EJB tier. That’s why I’m a noob.

Taking Thursday and Friday off for the university’s fall break. Friday (and maybe Saturday) I’ll volunteer for the Special Olympics though.

I think I’m getting sick. Hopefully the NyQuil will give me a good night’s rest, and the “AIRBORNE” herbal remedy will kill this funk ( I really hope I am not getting sick).
