I hate computers.

The vibe this week: hunting down obscure problems.

While I've been going through profiles of bizarre performance behavior one agonizing step at a time, the Twisted Matrix server has been on the fritz.

Exarkun is at the facility right now, taking the server's case off, poking the components with sticks, and generally abusing it. Right now we're thinking maybe it's a problem with the CPU fan, but since it starts off spinning at 4000 RPM, it seems unlikely that it's the fan itself that's broken.
