i'm so sorry for all the technical issues, i've never done anything like this before!
i probably shouldn't have published this at 00:15, huh
i added more worker threads and it seems like things aren't dying constantly now
@lynnesbian if you need a hand hmu, I'm quite well versed in bending servers to my will :P
@lynnesbian it's ok!
@lynnesbian nobody in the history of computers has ever launched something that worked perfectly on day one
I do this shit for a living, launch days are *always* "hotfix all the bugs you never saw in staging" days
and that's with people who've done this before, *everyone's* first application crashes horribly right away
@lynnesbian Oh, and: the real world is fucking weird.
I work for a bank. The last "big" project I was a part of launching had a bug where you just, couldn't buy anything from this one, random Japanese tour guide. I was late at the office the last day of the beta, before it rolled out to everyone in the morning, trying to fix that.
It turns out this *one website* ran software that rejected all messages that didn't put the fields in the *exact order they're listed in the protocol specification*.
@lynnesbian Oh and I got there in the morning, after *months* of testing to try to stamp out bugs before we switched everyone onto it.
The moment we hit ship, a bunch of shit broke, because computers are extremely bad.
@lynnesbian this is precisely how you learn, hand in there
@lynnesbian tfw you wonder if this is an xkcd snowclone or not
@a_breakin_glass unfortunately not
