Surprise results for the off road test. I guess if I competed I would have to consider it.

Demolition of Cockenzie powerstation chimneys.

I grew up only a couple of hundred meters from the station and even worked in it for a few months. It was opened the same year as I was born in 1967 so has always just been there.

As many others have said, it has been a huge landmark for many people for a long time. Fishermen, cyclists, walkers and even motorists. If you lived anywhere near it, when this came into view you knew you weren't far from home.

;-) tongue firmly in cheek. 
EIGHTEEN workers have died after a USB stick was removed from a computer without adequate precautions.

Tech Recommendations/Discussion  - 
 
Building a new server for an Oracle based system. Because of licensing restrictions from oracle this is a pretty low spec server. Dell r630 with a single 6c xenon and 8 spinning disks in raid 10. It's also a VM sitting in xenserver 6.5. Just out of curiosity I did a benchmark without the xen tools installed and it was about a 3rd of the speed on most of the tests and a massive 10th of the last test. . All in all a nice little server.

Story
Introduction
Caution may contain a nut

General geek and have been working in IT for about 8 years now.  Mostly responsible for servers and network stuff.  I am a real gadget nut as well so like my toys.  
Always been into motorcycles since even before I was old enough to drive them on the road.  Have been using my current one the last couple of years for my main summer holiday and have been to the farthest north of Scotland to the south coast of England with a visit to Wales in between.
Music wise I will listen to anything just about but prefer rock.  There is nothing like a bit of AC/DC
