17:38 BenBE shortcircuit Is the RC server running any accelerator software (APC, eAccelerator, Zend, xcache)?

18:51 shortcircuit BenBE: Yes
18:52 shortcircuit Er.
18:52 shortcircuit I thought it was, but apparently not.
18:52 shortcircuit Ah, yes. php5-xcache.

19:08 BenBE I'm currently trying eAccelerator ...
19:08 BenBE Works nicely so far, after the one patch I had to apply for open_basedir ...
19:08 shortcircuit I'm using php-xcache because between the two opcode cachers recommended when I needed one, xcache was the one that had a package for the OS I was running on.

20:47 BenBE Well, compiling eAcc wasn't that hard.
20:47 BenBE it phpized in ~2 seconds, ./configured in ~10 and built in 20 ...
20:51 waldwolf left #rosettacode
21:33 shortcircuit BenBE: Remember, I try to minimize the time I need to spend on server maintenance, which means minimizing the number of packages I have to manually keep up to date.
21:34 shortcircuit That'll change if/when this becomes a full-time job, which is starting to look plausible.
21:39 mwn3d_phone shortcircuit: are we selling any swag?
21:40 shortcircuit mwn3d_phone: I don't think so. Zazzle hasn't said anything about it.
21:41 shortcircuit mwn3d_phone: I'd love to drop Text-Link Ads and find something better.
21:41 mwn3d_phone What are the other options?
21:42 shortcircuit That will talk to me? I don't know. Thing is, I want to avoid ads which aren't topically related to the site.
21:42 shortcircuit That means, e.g. no weight loss or ringtone ads.
21:43 mwn3d_phone Right. Don't need random naughty sites advertising here
21:43 shortcircuit I've tried two ad networks now, and looked at a third, and none of them seem to have an appropriate "tech sector" category.
21:44 shortcircuit At this point, I'm thinking cold-calling might be a better way to spend my time.
21:44 mwn3d_phone I wonder if it would help to have a little demographic study
21:45 mwn3d_phone Then you could take that data to whoever can provide ads
21:45 shortcircuit The kind of ads I'd love to run: Language tools, code libraries, conference announcements, relevent online classes, etc.
21:46 mwn3d_phone I wonder if you could just go directly to conferences and manually add some links
21:46 shortcircuit I know why people come to the site, and I should be able to use that to find the right advertisers.
21:47 shortcircuit mwn3d_phone: "manually add some links" -- easily, even on a per-page basis. I wrote a MW extension so that I could run different HTML-generating code on a per-page basis. Had to, because of the twisted way TLA distributes their ads.
21:48 shortcircuit If they want to add their own links and such to the appropriate pages, that's fine; that kind of thing is useful to general site content.
21:48 mwn3d_phone Maybe go directly to the sources and try to set up deals
21:48 shortcircuit mwn3d_phone: That's what I was thinking.
21:48 mwn3d_phone I approve of that idea
