Distributed systems and massive orchestration is fun (and frustrating).

I just remembered the tool I wrote when I was working at Gameloft to avoid the pain managing AWS when doing stress tests.
A couple of simple C# programs that let me orchestrate hundreds of VMs semiautomatically and see realtime stats of every one of them in a nice GUI on my PC.
Those were fun times. And it was Aperture Science thematic!

I take back what I said, it was just me being dumb not knowing who to interpret the data.

I'm trying to profile my allocations in Tracy, but all I get is a noisy list of allocations made by Tracy itself (with a pinch of my own here and there), dammit.

GitHub "Explore" recommendations were a nice way of finding interesting projects. Since Microsoft acquired it that feature became worse and worse and now its totally useless.
What a shame

just bought a Pinephone CE, now to sit and wait for it.

took a couple hours to integrate the Tracy profiler into my C++ project. very smooth experience and great results. this is gonna be much better than a lot of printf()s

the worst part of writing a game server emulator is clearly DB design

i'll probably talk mainly about network protocols, systems and videogame tech.
see you around!
