Next days...

I'm going to be a bit away from Redis code and this blog as I need to freaking focus on finishing the video talks for the Redis Conference that is very near at this point...

I'm also tuning and testing the final bits into 2.6 to make sure to release it ASAP :-)

See you in a couple of days.

p.s. also my wife feels contraction since a few hours, so maybe Greta is going to birth in a few... (!!!)

New 2.6 MONITOR behaviour with transactions

antirez 1830 days ago.
The commit message says it all:

    Fix MULTI / EXEC rendering in MONITOR output.
    Before of this commit it used to be like this:
    ... actual commands of the transaction ...
    Because after all that is the natural order of things. Transaction
    commands are queued and executed *only after* EXEC is called.
    However this makes debugging with MONITOR a mess, so the code was
    modified to provide a coherent output.
    What happens is that MULTI is rendered in the MONITOR output as far as

Random victim on Twitter

These are the real victims of flamewars:

"After the recent affair with @antirez's blogpost, I'm seriously considering forgoing further usage of #Redis in all my projects." (@nathell)

Obvious considerations:

1) Somebody will be happy about this as there was definitely a force trying to resonate as much as possible what was happening in the worst way.
2) The guy should read my blog post seriously.

But this is how it goes, you write a blog post that is a point of view about how to handle sexism (focusing on its effects, not the cause that anyway at the most subtle level, for instance a wrong promotion, can simply be denied by the author of the sexism), and the net result thanks to a number of people in part evil, in part simply bigot as hell, is that I'm sexist.

Ask your questions on Stack Overflow if you wish

Hey, since I'm no longer active on Twitter, that was a channel where from time to time I replied to requests from users, I'm now making sure I reply to a few questions on Stack Overflow every day, lurking on the "Redis" tag:


I can't ensure you that I'll reply to your question, but I can ensure you I'll be there often to reply to a few questions a day, and together we can create a Redis ecosystem in one of the best places on the internet where to give or receive help, that is Stack Overflow.

New site look improved a bit.

Now it's like a mix between a twitter timeline and a blog. I fixed the RSS feed, but still could be generated better than that. Well the point is that as far as I've the min needed to improve it in the future will be easy and fun.

p.s. yes the layout and fonts are a bit of a mess, but it's not going to be too hard to fix it. For now I focused more on what it should display.

Warning: I forgot to increment the js version counter so it takes a few hard reloads of the page to get the right CSS.

Welcome to the new site!

Hi visitor! This blog was conceived for low traffic blogging. Now that I plan to don't use my Twitter accounts the old blog engine was not good enough.

The simplest thing to do was to take Lamer News and create a quick modified version that could be used as a blog engine... that's the result, for now. I hope to evolve it, but the point here is, I can write both long posts and very small ones that can be read directly from the home page.

It is also possible to write just short titles linking to external site, that is a feature I plan to use as well to link to interesting Google Groups comments and stuff like that.
