and I quote

July 5th, 2005

"A stable, robust, scalable, dynamic and reliable information system is a cornerstone of any kind of Grid system."

Let me stop you right there: Robust? The very same infosys which crashed over a slightly malformed configuration file? Reliable? The same infosys which crashed twice in two months? Stable? The same infosys which launches daemons and never actually kills them, so you end up with just more and more processes?

It's good to aim high.

    Happy to oblige, I never run out of them..

    Spent most of yesterday reading the manual for this thing. It actually looks a lot more vague and intimidating than it is, but evidently they're not very good at presenting the docs in a way that makes people read them cause I'm hardly the only who got that impression of it.

    You read manuals?

  4. numerodix says:

    Yeah, how else would I know how the damn thing works?

    Just do what I do: fiddle till it does something

    That used to be my philosophy as well. But I signed a statement saying I'm liable for any damage of property so I can't do that anymore.
