Last week the FASTER cable, a new transpacific network link with a theoretical peak capacity of 60 Tbps (that's 60 million megabits), landed in Japan.  FASTER is a joint project between Google and several ISPs to provide, well, faster Internet speeds between the two regions.  The album (with pictures courtesy of http://gigazine.net/news/20150615-kddi-faster/) give you a quick overview of how such a cable is installed.

PS: see how this was done in 1956 for TAT-1, the first modern transatlantic telephone cable (with capacity for 36 phone calls, or about 0.2 megabits): http://atlantic-cable.com/Cables/1956TAT-1/index.htm.

Heh. From the Google engineer's point of view, blaze and TAP are the most important tools they have [1]

Gazing into an orangutang's eyes makes it pretty easy to remember we're all part of the same superfamily. 

This one—found with air-gun pellets in its body—is being treated by a vet after rescue by the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry: http://bbc.in/PkiCcy

Typepad was victim of a DDoS since last Thursday. This was a very exhausting and absolutely not a fun experience, but I've also learned a lot, so in the end I'm glad for the experience.

I've been up for more than 36 hours and had to mitigate two DDoS the same day (one starting Sunday at 5am, lasting 7 hours, and a second one at 11am lasting another 7 hours ...).

I've learned a few things, but more than the technical stuff, it's the "human" part I'll try to keep in mind:

* if things are broken for 3 hours, no need to rush, take your time. 10 more minutes won't make a difference now

* communication is key. When it's 4am and you're tired and you're making a change, announce it on a medium that is archived, so you can go back to it the next day, rested, and spot your mistake, instead of wasting your time trying to remember wtf you did

* as +Abe Hassan wrote last year, announce who's in control (http://if.andonlyif.net/blog/2013/01/controls-in-an-outage.html)

* no need to freak out. If you don't know how to do something, ask for help, and ask frequently if anyone needs your help or need a second pair of eyes to review a change

* communicate with stake holders. For that part I screwed up last Friday and didn't wake up my manager at 5am thinking there was no need to take him out of the bed. That was mistake. The sooner he's implied, the sooner he would have been able to communicate the situation to the various teams and reassure them. 

I'm not looking for the next one, but as I said, and I'm also glad for the experience and the huge amount of stuff I've learned the last few days.

... and damn proud to be part of the ops team at Say :)
For Christmas two years ago, I bought a friend a flying lesson. In advance of the actual class, we were asked to read a couple chapters out of a flying manual. One section described how to hand off the controls to your co-pilot, called a three-way positive control exchange technique. It's explicit on both sides: the person handing off says "your controls", the person receiving says "my controls", and the person handing off says "your controls" ag...
