$2.72

That is how much money I've spent [in machine time] trying to figure out why my new and improved parser dies horrible on awsp. I thought maybe there was a problem with the framework I was using, perhaps I wasn't flushing the output to the file properly in my ocaml app, any number of possibilities. Turns out I was having 7 machines all write to the same file [where I thought they were all writing to different files in there local cache]. The reason why it never showed up in my ,albeit limited, testing is I only have on machine, and only on the platform does it run on multiple nodes at the same time. I hope I don't have too many more gotchas like this hanging around since Monday is fast approaching :)
