A piece of Google history
 
15 years ago we placed the largest server offer in our history: 1680 servers, packed into the now infamous "corkboard" racks that packed four small motherboards onto a single tray. (You can see some preserved racks at Google in Building 43, at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, and at the American Museum of Natural History in DC, http://americanhistory.si.edu/press/fact-sheets/google-corkboard-server-1999.)  

At the time of the order, we had a grand total of 112 servers so 1680 was a huge step.  But by the summer, these racks were running search for millions of users.  In retrospect the design of the racks wasn't optimized for reliability and serviceability, but given that we only had two weeks to design them, and not much money to spend, things worked out fine.

BTW the four white pins in the forefront are the reset buttons for the four servers, and the disks are mounted on a plexiglass board which lies on top of the board (not attached -- there was no time to design a proper bracket).

“They’re like, ‘Sir, there’s something in your bag.’
I said, ‘Yes, I think it’s this box.’
They said, ‘What’s in the box?’
I said, ‘a large gold medal,’ as one does.
So they opened it up and they said, ‘What’s it made out of?’
I said, ‘gold.’
And they’re like, ‘Uhhhh. Who gave this to you?’
‘The King of Sweden.’
‘Why did he give this to you?’
‘Because I helped discover the expansion rate of the universe was accelerating.’
At which point, they were beginning to lose their sense of humor. I explained to them it was a Nobel Prize, and their main question was, ‘Why were you in Fargo?’”

Today I built skateboards with a bunch of other coworkers for Board Rescue-- a charity which gets kids out of the house and helps get them preoccupied with a great physical activity.

I really enjoy the food at this authentic, family-owned/operated Salvadorian restaurant. I've been a repeat customer after my first experience. The mother/daughter combo that cooked/waited on us, respectively, were extremely friendly and warm.

My entire driver side door needed to be replaced after my roommate reversed into the car without looking. After an initial estimate by FCC work started immediately. Raul was extremely helpful as usual (I've been to FCC before) and kept me constantly up to date with the latest progress on my car. The worked took longer than it was originally expected to take but this was not the fault of FCC; They were waiting for a whole new car door part to arrive. Overall, great work and excellent people to deal with!

We've eaten here a few times and the food is rather tasteless and overcooked and to add to that, my roommate got food poisoning from the prawns. I'd avoid this place.
