I spent the last 2 days compiling and re-compiling a program with different options to try and make it run faster with a sample data set. The fastest I got so far was 1 hr 6 mins. I JUST got it down to 1 hr 5 minutes a few minutes ago. You cannot imagine the elation and pride I felt when I achieved that; it's times like these that make me remember why I love my job so much. I am gonna call myself the compilation king from now on.
Oh and something only a computer geek will understand :
I used vi so much the last 2 days that when I was typing out my report for the compilation results I actually tried to use "x" to delete words. Hahaha. How funny is that ?
OK I NEED TO GET A LIFE.
