09:11 Klepp Hello!
09:11 Klepp I am reading up on REST on wikipedia and have a question
09:12 Klepp Under "Architectural constraints" -> "Stateless" it says "The session state can be transferred by the server to another service such as a database to maintain a persistent state for a period and allow authentication."
09:12 Klepp does this mean that the server will have knowledge of state? I thought the server should not know this
09:28 trygvis Klepp: the wikipedia page is not very good at explaining stuff

09:32 trygvis the 'state' in REST is not the same as your http session state
09:43 Klepp ah ok, thanks

20:33 znn i have a question about web app development
20:33 znn https://gist.github.com/uunsamp/c545d6b7fa48bb458bd4
20:33 znn summary is "should i create a job for each request to an endpoint"
20:33 znn or is that overkill
20:33 znn or is that going to make my app drastically slower
20:34 znn summary is "should i create a job for each request to an endpoint"
20:34 znn or is that overkill
20:35 znn oops, sorry
20:38 saml you're creating an http proxy?
20:38 saml why complicate things?
20:38 saml jobs and stuff
20:39 saml jobs are for long running background tasks, for example.  you create CRUD for jobs so clients can poll/monitor status of submitted jobs.
20:39 saml what you describe sounds like cached proxy to me
20:41 znn saml: creating an http proxy isn't really the intention, i just want to make my application scale well
20:41 znn i figure this would help
20:42 znn saml: it looks like you are right though
20:42 znn the mongrel2 web server seems to work this way
20:42 saml why worry about scale?
20:42 saml http scales pretty okay
20:43 saml how much traffic do you get currently?
20:44 znn well, none. i have a contract to build an app that will be used at a city wide event
20:45 znn and i've never had to worry about scale before, but i'm planning on max about 5 - 10k connections
20:45 znn most likely not all at the sime time
20:54 saml those are nothing. i'd just proxy all requests
