Moore's Law is like Godwin's Law. They don't describe a physical attribute, but rather a behavioral one. As a result, both can be violated at will (or exceeded).

I see Moore's Law primarily as a goal setting for market competition. If competition dies, so will Moore's Law as the need for the behavior will no longer have a driver.

".... the shift in the pay TV sector will be evolutionary, not revolutionary"

Can't disagree ... but that could change as content providers start offering alternate access methods.

Nice ..... 
Securing SSH with two factor authentication using Google Authenticator is possibly the best security model you can out there for free. You can always restrict SSH by IP, change port, rate-limit and do all sorts of crazy stuffs. But those who wants to open SSH to the outside world and implement all these extra security models (i.e. Brute-force detection etc.) have to constantly worry about the fact that who is trying is and what you’ve missed whil...

I use a secondary authorized key with passphrase for access from my phone for just such an emergency. That lets me run the externally accessible SSH server with password login disabled, yet still have a backup access for odd situations. Because the phone's key requires a passphrase, it's secure even in the case the phone is lost or stolen. :)

"... OpenStack is not easy to deploy. The project is in a state of constant evolution. To put it into play as a private cloud requires a lot of work from any system integrator. As for installing OpenStack using your own IT staff … just don’t. Unless you have OpenStack experts in-house, you’re just asking for a world of pain."

Makes me feel better .... I just thought I was an idiot ....
 
For business cloud users, the moral of the story is that you should look very carefully at your partners. You don't want to end up without support with no notice to speak of.
Nebula, one of the first OpenStack hardware resellers and integrators, closed its doors April 1st. And, no, it wasn't an April Fool's joke. The company was founded in 2011 by Chris Kemp, who had been chief technology officer for IT at NASA where he helped create OpenStack.

Sounds fun. Scale Computing seems to be kvm based, with a web ui and various automation. They only operate on specific hardware, but we're considering it to get away from VMWare pricing. We are too broad in discipline to expect the typical crew to be virsh proficient. Dell has a VMware product that does the same thing as of like 6mo ago. Growth of storage or compute just means tossing another server in as each brings all that. Efficiency probably decreases with scale I suppose. Sounds like it is everything you don't want.

Solar flux 114 and estimated planetary A-index 117. The estimated planetary K-index at 1500 UTC on 18 March was 5.

That's the latest report from WWV ..... the important number is A-index which indicates the level of disturbance in the earth's geomagnetic field in the last 24 hours .... I have never seen the number go this high in recent memory ... never 3 digits ... and I can't remember anything over 40 ... on NOAAs scale this was a 4 of 5 level storm .... wow ...

Interesting ...  TV is dead ... long live TV ...

With regulator eyes on Comcast-TWC, is AT&T's DirecTV purchase skating? • 2:03 PM Jason Aycock, SA News Editor

With the proposed merger of Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (NYSE:TWC) getting all the oxygen from the post-net-neutrality FCC, the $48.5B deal that AT&T (NYSE:T) has to acquire DirecTV (NASDAQ:DTV) appears to be getting a relatively free pass.

Both deals will create a company controlling more than a quarter of pay TV -- so it may be Internet access that's drawing extra scrutiny. The combined Comcast-TWC company would serve high-speed Internet to almost 40% of Americans.

Even FCC petitions opposing the deals are telling: 20 against Comcast-TWC, five against AT&T-DirecTV. And 88,000 brief comments opposing Comcast-TWC, 14,000 opposing AT&T-DirecTV.

I see traditional TV as very similar to traditional telephone (POTS). As the market shrinks, it remains a cash cow. As a result, consolidations are somewhat inevitable to maintain a sufficiently profitable base.

Eventually, both industries will be sold to smaller companies, for whom the reduced income is enough. And then finally, someone will buy what's left to reclaim the copper assets.

Does it suck for those that have to deal with the resulting monopoly? Yes. But that just means that regulatory limits need to be imposed to maintain a level of service and prevent predatory cash extraction during the death throes.
