Some quick notes about the infrastructure around here:
- The blog system lives on an internal server and the static pages are periodically mirrored to the public-facing server. At least, that’s how it was explained to me. Blogging was a bit frustrating before I figured that out.
- The comments are moderated. So far, I have not had occasion to delete a single comment, save for some duplicates. I would actually be happy to remove that configuration and let the readers chat amongst themselves. However, due to previously described mirroring system, the comments would not show up for 5-10 minutes after posting. This would invariably lead to a lot of double posting and general irritation.
- Yeah, the Movable Type/MySQL comment system sometimes seems to go down or respond with errors. I have seen it happen occasionally when I post a comment. This may be the first blog where this problem is a real issue. It seems Penguin.SWF is the only blog hosted at blogs.adobe.com that receives an appreciable number of comments. I’m not sure why that is.
While we’re on the subject, why not check out some of the other Adobe blogs? I don’t think any of them talk about Linux much, but you may find interesting tidbits about other Adobe technology,
