I got into a somewhat unique situation few weeks ago: I had a JVM heap dump 16GB in size that I had to analyze using a memory profiler. It was obviously hopeless to analyze it on my laptop which only has 4GB of RAM. Fortunately, I was given access to a computer half the world away that had 64GB of RAM. What I did was I moved my YourKit profiler instance onto that machine and tried to run it using X.11 tunneled through SSH.

Last week I purchased a copy of Gears of War - it cost me some 12 bucks in local currency, one of the benefits of only buying 2-3 year old games. Yup, I'm the guy from this comic. So it happened that this weekend I decided to play a bit with it, so went to install it on a Sunday afternoon.
As installs go, it was uneventful, and I got to launching the game.
