This post is mostly just an attempt to one-up Jason Nassi’s post on his bizarre dream, but my comment was a bit too long to leave in a regular comment elsewhere.. Plus, I thought my dreams might be enjoyed by others.
To the cloud!
A few weeks ago, I was working on a project at work to load test our application on EC2. One night during the project, we discovered that the fridge in our apartment had stopped working. It had been degrading over time, but we just kept turning it down (up?) and finally figured out what was happening. Anyway, that night I had a dream that our fridge had stopped working, so I wrote a script to push the stuff from our fridge into AWS to cool it so nothing would spoil. It was a perfectly good plan. I was going to pay per hour for them to cool our stuff and then pull it back down once we were all fixed up
Kicking the tires
Lately we’ve been looking for a new place to live that’s a little closer to work. We looked at a number of places last weekend. This last week at work, we had some issues with a newer version of PHP and some configuration options. And the dream? You guessed it. I was walking through one of the places we had been last weekend making sure each room had the right version of PHP for us.
