was this stream recorded? I dont think it's even on twitch archive? (preparing for commute home ;))

VOD is missing on twitch due to a glitch, but it's on youtube. …

Archive on youtube: … kinda dull, mostly me bashing my head against a manual reference counting bug.

yet you still run across people that think automated garbage collection only has trivial upside

I stopped trying to do servers with a GCd language the day I started to get 23 seconds pauses (not fun to solve)

What system? I don't see how mark-and-sweep could take 23 seconds on the amount of physical ram you can install.

Pointer-chasing as in lmbench's lat_mem_rd can be remarkably slow. …

I stand corrected -- 23 sec definitely plausible. Just timed 100M randomized ptr chases at 8 seconds.

I'll save your tweet for the next time I have to justify why we write our backend from scratch :D

Of course, whether your server actually needs a terribly fragmented 64GB heap is another question...

I think I have a good solution the the problem I ended the OBBG stream with. I'm going to the store to get a snack, then I'll restart.

Starting OBBG programming stream now.

The trip to/from the store took 2x as long due to construction.
