Man, I just love win32 sometimes: "If the function succeeds, the return value is ERROR_SUCCESS." Naturally.
The @paypal numbers for their Java to Node move are absurd. A JVM app doing 1.8 pages/s isn't slow...it's broken. https://www.paypal-engineering.com/2013/11/22/node-js-at-paypal/ …
I find Big Bang Theory to be stupid and offensive. It's the blackface of intellectuals.

As of today, JRuby's new JIT finally compiles all Ruby 2.2 language features (interp was 100% a few months back). 9k is close!
I've been working on JRuby for ten years. Cheers!
There are a lot of really cooperative, constructive, positive people in the Ruby community. Don't waste your time on the ones who aren't.
