High performance

I love my job here. We had a long meeting this morning with a vendor, where we
talked about things like NAK suppression algorithms, JNI latency,
kernel/userspace transition latency, and kernel bypass network drivers. What's
great is that it isn't just "intellectual wanking", it's actually entirely
relevant to the work we're doing here.
One statement someone made, which I thought summed it up really well, was that
"2 milliseconds is forever, in our world." He's absolutely right.

kernel of corn? A delicious treat when popped and slathered with butter and salt....
