Guess who was handed a codebase that was at the time capable of handling ~9 million variables.
Guess who took about a month and scaled that up to over 460 million, while finding problems in the original code, fixing them and sending patches back to really smart people in top places.
Guess who, over the last unhappy week, diverted his attention to this and kicked that up a notch to now handle 2+ billion.
Guess who can now run really really really complicated problems, fast, while snickering at those who cannot.

Guess who is beyond glowing.
Guess who felt he probably did all this to negate being as sad.

Guess who feels guilty it did negate a large portion of it.

    We don’t believe it is right to equate things. Things that have no basis for comparison.
