Seems like I see a lot like this.
 
Red Hat Ditches MySQL, Switches To MariaDB

"Red Hat will switch the default database in its enterprise distribution, RHEL, from MySQL to MariaDB, when version 7 is released. MySQL's first employee in Australia, Arjen Lentz, said Fedora and OpenSuSE were community driven, whereas RHEL's switch to MariaDB was a corporate decision with far-reaching implications. 'I presume there is not much love lost between Red Hat and Oracle (particularly since the "Oracle Linux" stuff started) but I'm pretty sure this move won't make Oracle any happier,' said Lentz, who now runs his own consultancy, Open Query, from Queensland. 'Thus it's a serious move in political terms.' He said that in practical terms, MariaDB should now get much more of a public footprint with people (people knowing about MariaDB and it being a/the replacement for MySQL), and direct acceptance both by individual users and corporates."

I can deal with the little hit of ads they show. And they let you skip them. I deal with a lot of free services though so I am very used to it.

Review of the IMAX dome theater. I'm 6'3", so I write this as a fair warning for taller people. I saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens on 2015-12-22. When we walked into the theater, it was sooo warm. It never cooled off. If you like watching movies while sweating, then you'd be happy. I wasn't. As I went up the steps and started walking down our row, I knew there was going to be another problem: leg room. I could hardly walk without touching the seats. Then I sat down. It was horrible. There was nowhere to put my feet. My legs were stuck in one position for 2.5 hours with no relief. The seat was very narrow, as well. Did I mention how horrible this is and how badly your knees will hurt during the movie? I had high hopes for the movie itself, since J.J. Abrams apparently shot large parts of the movie in the IMAX format. Those hopes fell flat when it came time to actually watch the movie. The darks are horrible and you can't make out the details. You also spend all your time moving your head back and forth since you can't see everything happening at once. Regular movies in this dome theater just don't work. Also, in case you liked 1977 quite a bit, you get to watch "worms" again. These are bits of dust or threads, or something on the lense of the projector and they are very distracting. These were the highlights, if you will. I've been in other IMAX theaters and didn't experience these issues. I have no desire to ever watch a moving in this theater again.

Weird policy of cleaning every four days. Conserve your toilet paper and tissues! Nice people everywhere. plan your meals, every meal was an "event". Also, you'll need that second mortgage to pay for the buffets. Location is nice, easiest to get to Epcot, but travel is pretty easy no matter where you go. I would stay agan, but with so many choices, maybe not???.

As soon as you talk to Andrew, you can tell he is very knowledgeable, and passionate about what he does. We hired him to trim all the trees on our property (around 12), and he could tell me about each, and tons of tips on their care. He had a delay on another job and was able to perform our work on a Sunday (his choice) with a one day notice. This worked well for us and he was even courteous to not fire up a chain saw until after 11:00am. We, and our neighbors appreciated this. Andrew and Doug were there the whole day very few breaks and no lunch that I saw. He did hire a couple of other guys for some short term labor, but we were fine with that, too. Their cleanup was amazing and the trees look great now. For our job, Andrew's bid was easily 1/4 of the other bids we had. That includes another small one man operation, too. We will definitely be in touch when we need tree work again, and have no qualms recommending him. One last note for the Groupon related reviews here..Andrew did explain that to me and like anything, it's the curse of the Groupon bring too much business, too quickly. If you're looking, you should definitely give Andrew a chance and have him take a look before you decide on a tree service.

I believe their slogan is "It's all about the bread", which is fitting, because you don't get much more than that. I tried this for lunch and ordered the "That's Italian" and was underwhelmed to say the least. $5.50 to get a tiny amount of meat and a whole lot of bread. I appreciated that the Italian dressing was on the side, and I like the toasting of the sandwich, but for my money, I feel like I'd be wasting it. If they doubled the meat on this sandwich, it would have felt like a sandwich, rather than a snack 5 hours before dinner. As far as the ambience and service goes, it had a "cold" feeling, not really warm and welcoming. The girl at the counter was super friendly, but you ordered and then went and got the food yourself, so there is really no "service" to speak of.

The front desk staff is great! Our stay was nice and relaxing. Only nit is the breakfast area is pretty small.

I tried the shromp rangoon, Thom Kha Kai and green curry with tofu for an $8.95 lunch. Both were excellent. I specified "Thai Hot", aka 5 stars and it made my lips tingle, but was still quite tolerable. I will definitely be back soon to try some more of there menu. I find it a great value, excellent taste, and was a fantastic find on in this part of town.

We stopped in early (around 4:30pm) on Saturday. On the way in, I only noticed one other table. Our group was 3 adults and two kids. I bring this up because of my major quibble: slow service. Other minor quibbles were delays in getting our drinks and sitting with two kids (8 & 5), but only offering crayons, etc. at the END of the meal while waiting for dessert. Now that I've gotten the "bad" stuff out of the way, I can focus on what was good about our experience. 4 of our choices were: * Kids spaghetti * Shrimp and steak pasta * pikilia * Greek salad (with chicken) This was all REALLY GREAT FOOD! Who knew this was sitting right in Pella this whole time? Even the kids spaghetti had really great flavor! My only quibble with the food was the gyro meat was a bit "tough". I'm used to gyro meat that folds easily with a fork. This was darker than I'm used to and was a tiny bit tough to manipulate with just a fork. The stuffed grape leaves were served cold and had only cheese in the middle. They were tasty, but different than what I've had in the past. Otherwise, everything was excellent and we won't hesitate to stop in again when we're in the area. One last note. We really loved the feel of the decorations. My wife has spent time in Greece and she said it brought back memories of sitting outdoors in a little cafe in Greece. All I know is that the decor was interesting to look at and made for a refreshing feel in "small town Iowa".
