Long DescriptionReleased in October 1982, Joni Mitchell's 11th studio album, 'Wild Things Run Free' was, for some fans, a return to form. What this often meant in reality was that many such Mitchell enthusiasts had been somewhat perplexed by this remarkable composer and performer's output since 1975, when she introduced jazz and classical influences into her work, and even when such tendencies were included on such towering albums as 'Hissing of the Summer Lawns' and 'Hejira', a certain quarter longed still for the days of Big Yellow Taxi, The Circle Game and Woodstock. Nothing wrong, of course, with such majestic and beautiful songs, but to dismiss such a challenging and forward thinking artist's moves does appear to be a little stilted. But, when Joni hit the road in early 1983 on one of her longest and widest reaching tours - taking in Europe, Asia and Australia in addition to dates in North America - it seems she was out to please all her fans: the sticklers, the modernists and the-somewhere-in-betweens. In fact so diverse and eclectic were the set-lists on this remarkable tour, they not only took in cuts from her 'classic years' and her brace of mid-1970s challengers , she would often give numbers from her most reviled work (amongst the traditionalists), 'Mingus', a whirl. But she would always appease those disgruntled by a rendition of God Must Be a Boogie Man with a splendid A Case of You, a well placed Both Sides Now or an encore of Carey. This superb FM radio broadcast, transmitted live from Joni's show at Tokyo's famous Nippon Budokan, is a fine example of such a show, mixing as it does the old, the new, the borrowed and - while the title track from her 1971 meisterwork is inconveniently absent - cuts from 'Hissing', 'Hejira' and 'Mingus' are all in evidence. Hopefully, therefore, a fine time was had by all those in attendance. For anyone listening today, a fine time is hereby guaranteed.

Article of interest

This is just a general comment to those that might be interested in some technical info about our site and how Google interacts with it.

Google is frigging amazing!

Their programmers are very curtious when it comes to their spiders and how they interact with various web sites. Apparently, they are sensative to the load that their spiders place on a web server and do a darn good job when it comes to not overloading a server.

Another major search engine is not quite so nice. If you don't tell them to leave you alone, they will hammer the heck out of your site and potentially bring you to your knees.

Over the past vew days, we have been doing a massive system backup to a couple new off-site backup servers. Normally, this process is pretty quick but because these were new servers they required fully syncronization. Well, I forgot to take into account the drain this could place on our server and I let more than one backup run at a time.

This caused our main server to experience a high load for several days. Google detected this load and backed off its crawling process which was very kind of them. The only bad thing is that when Google backed off, our monitoring process (mostly manual at this point) assumed everything was only slightly higher than normal.

Google may be awesome, but it can be frustrating some times too.

This cool and wonderful feature that Google has in place to prevent overloading a server had an unexpected side affect. Because Google thought our site was super busy (which it was) it reduced the number of people it was referring to the site too. DOH!

As we noticed the visitor count slowly drop we got very confused because the system load was still very high. And we noticed Google wasn't visiting as often as usual and then we saw it... The backup process had overloaded the system. Not to the extreme but enough to make Google think there was a problem. We still actually had plenty of bandwidth for real users just not as much for the bots that visit (which we limit when bandwidth is limited).

Anyway, it was a good learning experience and we are now seeing the referrals climb back up and the Google spider is picking up its pace again too.

We had to force a couple other bots (including that othe big search engine) to play nice because they were trying to take more than their share of our data.

All in all, Google is AWESOME and very powerful. So THANKS GOOGLE for playing nice with others!
