A lot of interesting presentations at today. Some I can see making a viable difference quite quickly if they can be piloted.

Just doing some tuning of my before tomorrow event. I'll probably only be observing but might as well have my tools handy ;-)

Plate spinning 3 bugs today and context switching on re-compiles on slow systems.
