It's easy to get your Google back :)

When designing infrastructure systems, whether creating new applications or deploying existing software, it’s crucial to manage cost. Costs come from a variety of sources, and every approach to delivering infrastructure has its own tradeoffs and complexities. Cloud infrastructure systems create a whole new range of variables in these complex equations. 

In addition, no two clouds are the same! Some bundle components while others offer more granular purchasing. Some bill in different time increments, and many offer a variety of payment structures each with differing economic ramifications.  How do you figure out what each costs and make a choice?

To help you work this through, we’ve created an example for you--read it here: http://goo.gl/a2hjiM

You might need to ask your butcher (assuming you have one) or even a store meat manager to order in a tri-tip roast Two pounds is a good size, but if you come across a larger one, by all means grab it as the extra meat makes amazing sandwiches The trick is to carve the tri-tip against the grain, which can change directions in this cut

Good not great. Had the truffle burger in SF and thought it was the best burger I'd ever had. Got the same thing here and it was, well good, just not great. Also the fried pickles were pretty good.

Great experience with Ferdinand. I came in knowing exactly what I'd like to do (trade in my 2012 Prius for a 2014 Prius Plug-In) and he helped me throughout. Was easy to do business with, didn't try to go back and forth with "let me check with my manager on that," just a good honest guy. I also liked that I wasn't at the dealership for hours and hours. They had everything ready quickly and I was able to make it home for dinner with my wife!

Great prices, hanger steak and salmon plates were amazing. Big fan, can't wait to come back. Hope they don't raise prices for awhile (although I would gladly pay $1-2 more, shhh)
