This week in “That happened: notes from #splunk”, a blog about the goings-on in the Splunk IRC channel:
And first, a message from our sponsor*:
- Today is the deadline to nominate for the Splunk Revolution Awards! Nominate yourself or someone else in one of 5 categories! Win money, fame, and glory!
- If you’re a #splunk or Answers denizen and will be attending .conf, contact me about getting on the guest list for our exclusive Answers/IRC party! Best way to contact me is to join us in #splunk IRC on EFNET and ask for piebob.
- Speaking of .conf, GET REGISTERED! 100+ sessions of real-world use cases, implementation details, and best practices await you. This is not your typical conference–we work hard to make the sessions full of valuable information, not sales pitches.
*Sponsor is technically also me.
Luckily, there can be more than one
Where do the Thundercats fit into this scenario?

<automine> love it
<automine> it’s big
<automine> it’s heavy
<automine> it’s well formatted and starts with a full timestamp
Splunk love one-liners
<jtrucks> I love operations people who send me this: Splunk just saved me so much time.
<dbCooper> Told the boss to keep my bonus this year and spend it on our license.
<stewgoin> I half expect Splunk to become a Schedule III controlled substance
As long as they don’t make you an offer you can’t refuse
Marketing ain’t proud
<cerby> I think I’m going to open up my door one morning to leave for work and find a horses head on it, with a note. “stop throwing us under the bus! -dev”
<cerby> …and a flaming bag of dog poop, its note will say “Yeah! -QA”
<cerby> Splunk> Enabling Ops to throw everyone else under the bus since 2006
<firebus> Yes! The blame use case. One of my favorite.
<Coccyx> cerby: perfect, I’ll send it to marketing
