Reasons to be cheerful

#Wikimedia #Labs had its issues lately. There were problems with file systems, with tools that failed. There was not much that could be done about it.

The good news is that Labs does get attention. Support is given on IRC and the feeling I got was that there was a gentle progression from the big issues to the smaller ones.

Widar was not working for me. As things had become quit, there was room to look at the code. There was an easy way to make it more efficient, to make the code perform better.

Such attention is a gift. It helps me and other users of the tool. Such service is a reason to be cheerful, to be grateful. It also makes labs a pleasant environment.
