So you don’t have to run your own? :lol: Michael Dell is a smart man; smarter than me for sure if we are measuring by dollarS (and I believe that’s a valid test). Did he say what the reason was? Maybe Capital is cheap enough that Fortune 500 companies can afford to spend it on his products instead o...

Some of us have proprietary data that cannot go into the cloud.


I’m skeptical; we’ve had no problem getting HIPAA and PCI certified running 100% in AWS. If you’re really paranoid, client-side encrypt it.

Game of Thrones  *SPOILERS* - For the nights dark and full of SPOILERS

ASOIAF started with an interesting (if shallow) idea: let's re-write the Wars of the Roses in a sword-and-sorcery fantasy-land. Then...GRRM got Stephen King's disease. He was successful, so there's no more editing. Oh and also he's rich now so fuck even bothering to finish amirite? Similar with the ...
