Steve Jobs Dies October 5, 2011









Heard the sad news in the afternoon that Steve Jobs died today. Saw it first in my RSS reader, and then watched as it spread across every corner of the Internet. It was huge news, and became the headline story on every single news website I checked. Everyone on facebook was also talking about it and telling their friends.

Was super busy the past two days after a silly story on PetaPixel went viral. Received 400K views today, and dealt with slowness and timeouts the entire day. Rackspace support people told me that I should optimize my software, but I’m running a pretty standard wordpress install with caching. Not sure why the DB is getting hit so hard.

The weather got super cold all of a sudden. It feels like it was hot and sunny just a few days ago, but today it was freezing and raining outside.
