Today in #luni we ranted a bit about developers. (I’m “Malaprop” in the exchange.)

<mewyn> i’m gonna throttle one of our developers <mewyn> we had to reboot a server because his crappy code leaked ALL the server’s memory, pys was 99% and swap was 99% <SmooveB> heh <Malaprop> mewyn: As long as you’re throttling devs, can I give you a list? <Malaprop> Hm, I want someone to start a Web2.0 company, ThrottleYourDevs.com. Internet-enabled developer throttling, delivered right to your door. <SmooveB> XmlHttpThrottleRequest.com <Malaprop> I could add my list of throttled devs to my feed-reader to keep up with my order status. <SmooveB> feeds, xmlhttprequest, mashups... perhaps some sort of google maps integration <SmooveB> and realtime SVG tracking. <Sketch> you can’t be web2.0 without google maps integration <Malaprop> Totally. Beowulf clusters of throttled developers are so Web 1.0.

Note: No developers were actually throttled in the making of this post. But we wish some were.
