Someone wrote a really fun study about the CPU and Time overhead of Garbage Collectors in the JDK.

The paper finds that a GC can cost you somewhere north of 80% of CPU cycles and Time (ie, 80% more CPU cycles or Time used due to GC) at minimum and concludes that a low overhead GC remains "elusive".

And hence I like Rust, where the GC is a lie and my Types are turbofishing into yesterday.

Just finished loading up the tape library for work. 24 Tapes, each 18TB, about 20TB after compression. Makes about 480 TB of storage in there. About the size of 8 Pizza Cartoons. Next Step: Calibrating/Media Init of the tapes, which takes two hours per tape. That's gonna run over the weekend. And monday I can run the script that makes them all automagically encrypted.

All in all, not much work for half a petabyte of backups.
