I've read code like this. I, ahem, may also have written code like this on occasion.

It takes real talent to burn billions of dollars on hosted services.
 
Well, that was fast! No more public cloud from HP.
Summary:HP has invested billions in its cloud offerings. Now, out of the blue sky, HP is leaving the public cloud business behind.

Interesting.

Worth noting that Sun also failed pretty spectacularly in Cloud Services, which Oracle killed in March, 2010.  Arguably a Good Move:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Cloud
http://www.infoworld.com/d/developer-world/oracle-hails-java-kills-sun-cloud-960

Also that HP pretty much owned a precursor to the cloud in the form of EDS, "electronic data systems", effective mainframe rental (though "mainframe mafia" is a phrase that might slip more readily off the tongue).

Also:  while Amazon is huge with AWS, there's a great deal of question over how profitable it is.  Checking just now, that should change shortly, Amazon announced in January that it would start breaking out AWS revenues separately in its financials:
http://www.networkworld.com/article/2878060/cloud-computing/how-much-money-does-amazon-make-in-the-cloud-we-ll-find-out-soon.html

I'd also be really interested in how much HP's dropping own-cloud and pursuing systems such OpenStack reflect a souring on the concept of entirely-outsourced virtual computing.  PostSnowden, that raises huge and significant issues.

I'm waiting for POSSECON. That's where you get to ride in on horses firing your six-guns into the air.

hey, someone wrote about me! And yes, that is the view out my window.
 
"Linux fits my temperament. I’ve always been a tinkerer. I tear things apart, I fix things, I make things, and I make them to suit me. It’s way more fun to tinker than to just buy things and push buttons."
So Carla is awesome and I want to be her friend. She’s got a wide variety of interests and they’re all fascinating. But her non-Linux interests aside, her Linux philosophy mirrors mine: create a...

"You know how some people work in the same job their whole lives and then retire? I can’t even do something I enjoy for that long."

This gives me hope.

How does anyone keep track of their activities on Google+? As soon as I click any of the notifications in the right notifications dealie all the recent ones disappear, and my old ones are there forever.

I can't help thinking of the South Park episode where Christopher Reeve had to keep eating fetuses to keep his paralysis at bay.

btw, i heard that microsoft is blackmailing manufacturers to lock out the possibility for users disabling restricted-boot manually, when windoze-10 will be released as oem - is that true? wouldn't this cause a serious anti-trust situation?

Seems like it's time for some history rewriting and blame assignment.  That's what I'm pushing for....

I give this a solid meh. The building is old, and suffers the same flaws as every hotel I've ever stayed in-- too damn noisy. The doors slam, and you can hear your neighbors talking, their alarm clocks, blaring their TVs, and thundering up and down the hallways. It is sheltered from traffic noise, so that's one plus. The rooms are small, the beds hard, and our hot water came and went, which made washing up or taking a shower unnecessarily adventurous. The staff are excellent and helpful. The main thing I want from a hotel is a good night's sleep, and I've yet to find one that has a clue about this.
