  • Will caught a 32lb Salmon:

32lb salmon

* [Ben has way more details.](

* Largest Salmon caught in California so far this season.

* I'm way too tired to describe it more, but it was fun, and I'm definitely going to do it again.
  • We saw whales too:

Though, the pictures don’t do them justice.

  • Didn’t get to bed until 3:00am.

    • MySQL-Cluster decided to shirt itself at 10:45pm.
    • NDB Cluster debugging sucks
    • ndb_restore at least works correctly.

      • Although, we had to tweak NoOfFragmentLogFiles to get restore working.
    • I wish we had went with a home built proprietary system, built on top of BerkeleyDB and our existing clustering tech, rather than trying to use MySQL-Cluster. Hindsight is 20/20 of course.
    • Will try to get all of our trace and debug info into a MySQL Bug report or at least a post on the mysql-clsuter list next week.
