View Article  Not very nice but fun

Lugh sent this to the LIST today, I just spent 5 hours swearing very loudly His message read as follows:

I Bet I Can Make You All Swear Loudly Several Times Today :-P ...

Don't believe me huh?

Ok then.  I can live with that but, you will swear, and swear loudly.
So loud in fact, that your neighbours may complain.
They might even call the cops.
Your cat or dog (if you have one) may meaow or yelp and bolt under the sofa.
Your budgie (if you have one) will run to the other end of its' perch and tremble with fear.
Hampsters and mice will definitely hide deep in their straw.  Terrified at the racket you're making.
The local preacher, priest or vicar may refuse to call by *ever again* when he hears you.

Still don't believe huh?
Right ya feckers!You've asked for it :-P ...

 *(Runs) ...*

Mark Reed popped this up on this blog so I thought I'd copy him and do it too

Iris - Lands of Fire (from the album Wrath)

Probably the nicest and that's not a bad thing, band i've ever met. Really cool guys writing great goth/emo. Hailing from Austin Texas they remind me of a lost weekend in Gothenburg at Sama. Prictures on link. Regan Jones and Andrew Sega and of course Brian

Apoptygma Berzerk - Kathy Song (c64 mix ) Single

Apop was my first look into future pop/darkwave as it is now. I was lent a cd by an ex girlfriend and it all went from there. Contrary to popular opinion "i'm not a goth" and was always indie dance boy.

Patrick Jones - There Life in Their Hands  (from album  Commemoration and Ammesia)

Six form poets of the world unite. Particks work resinate in the soul speaking from a perspective of honesty. Seeing Patrick at Water Rats Theatre in Kings Cross when the album came out was a great experience.  The music on this album is  great from Super Furries to the Manics and Julian Cope.

Body Count - D Roc (RIP) (from the album Murder 4Hire)

Ah my rock roots comes out, BC, BC, BC...what does this say well...Graham, Riverside Studios club, Friday night. A pillar, My nose work the rest out for yourself. Great. Oh to be young and stupid. When you look back and see that  a lot of the  orgianl  memebers of  Body Count are now dead.

The Derek Trucks Band - Sahib Teri Bandi - Maki Madni (from the album Songlines)

I got introduced to this by my boss. This track completely rocks all 9.53 amazing guitar. Done by the same guy who played on the track used on the top gear theme tune. The break at about 2mins40 is sublime.  Put it on turn it up and  space out.

Nine Inch Nails - Wish (live) (from the album  And All That Could Have Been)

Trying not to be a teenager to this song is impossible. Everything comes flooding back, the copperidge on the quayside, riverside, bulletpoof dodgy old goths. hairspray  and thursday nights of  fun at 70p a pint.

View Article  Picking a bad day for a Press Release
365main one the San Fransisco's biggest facilities, had their PR monkeys issued a press release celebrating the site's "two years of 100-percent uptime at 365 Main's San Francisco facility." Oops.

Not wanting to tempt fate this morning/last night their facility shut down due to a power outage losing Craglist, and Livejournal as well as other big names. The area has been seeing power problems all day but it seems the backup supply didn't kick in.

Reminds me of a story about a nameless facility that had generators on the roof to run the technical mains in case of power loss then on winters night when the snow was heavy on the ground. The facility lost power and the generators kicked in, after about 15 minutes the generator started to set off the alarms for low fuel. Its seemed that whoever wired the generator into the building wired the fuel pump into the house mains rather than the technical so the pump was not working. So some poor engineer had to spend all night hand filling the generators till the morning came and the power came back on.
View Article  Isilon gets thin with phat storage app

Storage vendor Isilon Systems has hopped aboard the thin-provisioning express that's chugging through the industry, adding the sought-after technology to its clustered storage products as a part of today's hardware and software revamp.

The new software, called SmartQuotas, combines quota management and thin provisioning into one software application. Isilon reckons its the first in the industry to combine the two for clustered storage. SmartQuotas allows users to partition a single, scalable, shared pool of storage (up to 1.6 petabytes) and assign limits on how much storage a particular user or group can access.


Oh so I can have workspaces in my Isilon oh it starting to sound like could be used to editing storage tool rather than your big SAN solution.
