with heartfelt apologies to TMBG, sing; sing; halt, and John McCarthy: Garbage Collector

Down in the core there's a place where there's nobody pagin' in
There's just the sound of the heads of the drives seeking over the disks in the array

And I've got something to help release the RAM
Something waiting there since the thread began

My garbage collector, it marks and then it sweeps
I'm the inspector over the heap

Look past the spinning locks (look past the locks)
Look past the thrashing jobs (look past the jobs)
Ignore the mountain of discarded text and blobs

(etc.)

In other news: man, I know bits are cheap nowadays and normalization is overrated, but remind me never to look at an Adium XML chat log ever again.
