FAQ
Your exactly right. Playing well with others has trumped actual
production and quality. You can see the mess that's gotten us in all
sorts of areas.

Luckily there are entrepreneurs and other managers/owners that value
quality first, and let feelings get repaired over beers or not at all.

Your approach is exactly what destroyed the Columbia and their lives
- politics over substance.

All of the half-baked "engineering" that is discussed on this list is
a joke. This list is a place people go to have their egos stroked -
regardless of what they're saying actually makes any sense.

You should work in Germany sometime - they would laugh at you for
your attitude !

"playing well with others" is usually a key employment criteria
people look for. (as well as being super-smart like you are).

Other people have asked you politely to tone it down, but you
persist on showing how stupid most of the people on this list are.

Why not leave the stupid people alone (they have already shown they
don't understand your finer points) , and go somewhere where you
are more appreciated, or better yet.. prove them wrong and build it
your way. I'm sure you convince your peers who are forcing you to
use such a feeble-minded project that your approach would work
better for them.

I've even created a space for you on Google-Code for you to show
them:- http://code.google.com/p/roberts-search/

Sincerely

If your index can fit in the IO cache, you should using a
completely different implementation...

You should be writing a sequential transaction log for add/
update/ delete operations, and storing the entire index in
memory (RAMDirectory) - with periodic background flushes of the
log.
That'll work too.
If you are running multiple processes (in KS), who is invoking
them (inetd or similar?), if not, and users are on the system,
you can't control what will happen with the IO cache...
See LUCENE-1458.
