Some of you may be excited to hear that I am finally on the brink of releasing a very interesting website. How interesting? It has kept my interest for weeks even though some of it is hard and some of it is annoying.

gzip -l ~/ai3_db_backup_20121211_ram2.gz
         compressed        uncompressed  ratio uncompressed_name
         1137167097           403791553 -181.6% /home/jvoss/ai3_db_backup_20121211_ram2

zcat ~/ai3_db_backup_20121211_ram2.gz | grep -e ^INSERT -e ^LOCK -e ^UNLOCK |wc
   4716  642299 4698740275

It's alright if you don't understand what the above means. The first one shows a bug I found in gzip where when you try to find out how large something is when it's bigger than 4GB uncompressed, it wraps and gives you a small number and a negative compression ratio. It's not a vulnerability so don't worry about it. The second one shows that there is about 4.7 GB of interesting data in that file.

So why do I have MySQL databases that are 17GB and growing at a rate of ~6GB per day? I parsed a Wikipedia database dump and I plan to release a very particular view of it. Without being too obtuse, it's an AI. When I release I will describe it in great detail. Until then, please wait patiently.

Javantea out.
