Truth beind Engineering

When you’re working with TBs and PBs of data you get some serious realizations. Beautifully put forth in the penultimate slide of this presentation.

All engineering solutions are transient.

Nothing’s perfect but some solutions are good enough for a while.

Scalability solutions aren’t magic. They involve partitioning, indexing and replication.

All data for real-time queries MUST be in memory.

Disk is for writes only.

Some problems can be solved by pre-computation, but a lot can’t.

Exploit locality where possible.

This is NOT the way to start ;)

Thankfully I got this pretty soon 😉

HE: I’m a photographer I’ve been looking for a face like yours!
SHE: I’m a plastic surgeon. I’ve been looking for a face like yours

HE: May I have the pleasure of this dance?
SHE: No, I’d like to have some pleasure too !

HE: How did you get to be so beautiful?
SHE: I must have been given your share !

HE: Will you come out with me this Saturday?
SHE: Sorry! I’m having a headache this weekend !

HE: Go on, don’t be shy. Ask me out!
SHE: Okay, get out!

HE: I think I could make you very happy
SHE: Why? Are you leaving?

HE: What would you say if I asked u to marry me?
SHE: Nothing. I can’t talk and laugh at the same time!

HE: Can I have your name?
SHE: Why, don’t you already have one?

HE: Shall we go and see a film?
SHE: I’ve already seen it!

HE: Do you think it was fate that brought us together?
SHE: Nah, it was plain bad luck !

HE: Where have you been all my life?
SHE: Hiding from you.

HE: Haven’t I seen you someplace before?
SHE: Yes, that’s why I don’t go there anymore.

HE: Is this seat empty?
SHE: Yes, and this one will be if you sit down .

HE: So, what do you do for a living?
SHE: I’m a female impersonator.

HE: Hey baby, what’s your sign?
SHE: Do not enter.

So, be aware next time when you go to any girl and try to impress her 🙂
