"If you electronically filed your return on or before April 15th and it was rejected for some reason, and you try to correct and refile on the 16th or later, the TurboTax software resets the due date for any electronic payment to April 16th or later. This seems to trigger the reject code FPYMT-072-01. To set the due date for electronic payment to April 15th, change the calendar date for your computer to the 15th, change the due date for electronic payment to the 15th, and electronically resubmit the return. When I did this for my return after I got the reject code FPYMT-072-01 on April 16th, my return was accepted by the IRS within an hour."
kill me.  #turbotax

Wiring Corkboards

Inspired by +Urs Hölzle's post from earlier today, I'll relate my first visit to a datacenter.  It was August, 1999, about a week after I had started at Google.  Our traffic was growing very quickly, and we had just gotten a delivery of 400+ machines to our "cage" in the Exodus datacenter in Santa Clara.  The machines were the infamous "corkboards", which we had designed in-house, and which featured a thin layer of cork to protect the motherboards from the cookie trays on which they were mounted  on(well, more like "rested haphazardly on").  Each tray of four machines was served by a single power supply (which made for interesting failure domains), and had 8 disks total.  Four of the disks were nicely mounted with actual screws towards the back of each tray, but four were place on a plexiglass sheet that was draped over the ribbon cables on top of the motherboards, giving a kind of springy base rather than a firm mounting point.

The two ops folks in the company at the time were a bit overwhelmed getting all of these machines cabled and ready to go, and the extra capacity was needed very soon, and so a call was sent out for volunteers to come help with a server wiring party.  We all went down to the cage in waves.   The cage was small enough and completely packed from floor to ceiling with computing equipment that only three or four people could work in there at once.  Rack switches were bungee corded to the water pipes above the cage to prevent them from toppling off the tops of the racks (in fact, while we were doing the wiring, one of the racks did exactly that and gave one of my fellow wirers a nasty gash on the head).

In the end, we got all the machines up and running, and our users were happy the next morning.
