Found a draft of a blog post I was writing ages ago, have a sneak peek.

@pyromage It really does I suppose,

Accidental art it seems?

Was trying to dump a ROM table from a TI MCU, didn't work out as I had hoped.

Don't mind me, I'm just backporting some C++20 stuff into C++17.

I still need to dump the firmware from my payphone.

Might do that tomorrow.

I'm happy with that LLVM build time.

(Well, LLVM, Clang, lldb, lld, libcxx, and libcxxabi)

So I can't get into my scaleway account. Page just spins loading forever.

I tried in FireFox, Chromium, from both my connection and over a SOCKS5 proxy, nothing.

What does seem to work is using Chrome over X11 forwarding on my fiancee's box.....

I hate computers.

@newt I mean, yeah, but you have no idea how many IA64 systems are still out there.

Heck, at $DayJob we have no less than five, and we release a product that supports IA64 (on HP-UX).

So while it might be dead, it's still around. (Blame HPE for that)

I've built binutils and GCC no less than 5 times for 4 different architectures tonight.

All the cross compilers~

@haskal Right, but still, It's just unacceptable to have it take up *THAT* much memory, it really doesn't need it. and ZFS's ARC already likes to be a glutton.

So tuning it down to what it would be on a system with 16 gig is fine.

@haskal I mean, the kernel was keeping 20GB of shit resident in RAM when idle.

So I just kinda tuned that down a little bit.

I was wondering why the kernel was using, like 20 gigs of RAM, turns out the `vm.dirty_ratio` was 20%.

Now 20% isn't *that* much, but 20% of 128GB is still a lot of RAM that I could be using for other things, like building GCC.
