Thought a few people would like to see this. 8GB RAM machine, 24 drives, 36TB raw, 31.5 raw after RAID6 with 1 hot spare. 29TB usable (there is some serious rounding error in many of the tools as I have discovered last night 🙁 1 TiB = 1.0995 1TB, and 29T = 31.8 TB … go figure …)
Many in the software community have viewed the Royal Navy’s wholesale move to Windows-based command systems with concern, feeling that the savings are not such as to justify possible losses in security, reliability and assurance. In addition to the existing nuclear submarine fleet, the RN will use similar equipment to handle its new Type 45 … Read moreThis is … a … good … idea … ???

The insecurity and potential compromise of serious and exploitable “mis-feature” in a browser (causing the browser maker to suggest using a competitive browser platform), or the security theatre at all of the banks we deal with who write their web pages specifically for that browser, so that no other browsers will work properly with it, regardless of platform, and whose representitives insist in meetings with you that they are indeed secure … see the little lock they ask me derisively?
ummmmm …. yeah.
I have commented in the past on the … er … uh … missing 64 bit Java plugins for Linux and other OSes. Well, Sun appears to have finally addressed this. Good job Sun. Better (6 years) late than never.
Some sort of fire at a local substation knocked power offline. Mail may bounce … my apologies. Will try to re-route to here for the moment until we can get power restored. I have to verify that the building owner will allow generators on the premises … [update] power is back up. New generator sitting … Read morePower outage at day job

The Register has an article on this. As I noted in the previous post (the linked article really), ASP reborn is a hard model to make work. You have to deliver what customers want, and do so inexpensively.
Sun Microsystems has killed it’s once high-profile utility computing experiment, Network.com, which let customers buy computing power by the hour.
The company revealed it’s no longer accepting new customers after four years, saying parts of the business and technology model “were not in the sweet spot”. The 13 customers and 48 applications using Network.com are will be offered continued service.
Amazon is succeeding at this in spades. Sun originally had the right idea … then someone decided to make Network.com into a massive Solaris marketing tool rather than a resource you could run what you needed.
My article on Cloud Computing is up. Only one equation. I promise!
Every now and then we look to see how people have found our web site. Usually a search engine is involved.
So today, I found someone googling “JackRabbit Delta-V” and thought
“Hey, people are starting to get to know our product names!”
I’d been worried as I had discovered shortly after we got our trademarks on JackRabbit, that Apache has a “JackRabbit” project.
