This makes it easier to explain the configurations supported today and configurations we might want to support tomorrow in addition to traditional tiered and leveled compaction. The summary is that n LSM tree has N levels labeled from L1 to Ln and Lmax is another name for L1. There is one 3-tuple per level and the components of the 3-tuple are (ty..

Why DreamHost is holding off on WordPress 5.0 updates

Hosting company will delay auto-updates until after Christmas as a precaution. Earlier this week I wrote about how GoDaddy auto-updated its managed WordPress customers to WordPress 5.0 shortly after it came out and why I thought this was a bad idea.

A build process runs in which..
