cron jobs that hide technical debt make the world go around
@staticsafe That's less "prevent it from leaking RAM" and more "mop up the bits it leaked all over the place".
@nivex good point
@staticsafe cant leak ram if you have none extra to leak *tapping head*
@zac ah yes, the Linux OOM killer method of managing RAM
@staticsafe it's shocking that any internet services work at all, and cron is the duct tape that holds it together
@staticsafe Spouse who does QA for a mid sized internet company agrees.
There are also rumors of sites exploding in production because you can't test the cron jobs in staging.
