Refactored #037: “Performance Optimization”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • Frank ages, realtime. He is so old and tired he can barely make it through the show.
  • The guys talk breaking and entering - both home and cyber. Do you know how easy it is to get through most doors? How easy it is to pick a lock?
  • The guys briefly discuss IDS/IPS technology, and the Thinkst Canary comes up even though Chris derps on the name.
  • Honeypots are kinda cool.
  • Chris rails against the query planner in MySQL, which opens a larger conversation about database and system performance. Long story short, don’t table scan, ya dolt.
  • Frank balances real life with a World of Warcraft habit, somehow (someWoW?), and shares an update regarding the ongoing Sanctum of Domination lag problems. The guys try to parse the language and diagnose the root cause of the issue.
  • … and much more!
