I want to do thumbs down on this video twice. I can only do it once; who can help?

10 connected to the ARECA card, 8 connected to the Adaptec card, and 6 on the motherboard.  Why?

They're worshiping him because ... he spends money?

The request size is 64 megs; how realistic is that?  Why was the peak realized at a 62.51 megabyte request size?

This isn't fair use.

When someone says something like "The larger the driver the sitting on top of your ear, obviously, the larger the separation between sounds within your ear canal", they make it pretty clear they don't know what they're talking about.

Did this video really start with the instructor belching? That's the first thing I heard.

What happened at 7:07 in the video? Looks like a bad edit; something is missing.

It's as if the presenter doesn't know the topic and is just reading a script. The slides are quite interesting, but a presenter who actually knew the topic would have added more value with a better narration.

I waited in line for 15 minutes to get to a pump. A full tank takes about 4 minutes to pump. I waited 6 more minutes for the attendant to return. 25 minutes for a tank of gas! When inside, I asked the cashier if there was only one attendant. He gave a wiseacre answer: "There's another one out back", indicating the truck-only diesel islands. Let's say I only waited 2 minutes in line, and two minutes for the attendant to return. That would still be annoying, but it would mean I only spent 8 minutes getting gas. If the station were properly run, the 17 minutes saved would let it pump four more tanks -- four more customers, and that much more profit. I can't guess how much longer this business will be open with its terrible service, but maybe they'll soon realize that they'd be able to help more customers, make more money, and generate more goodwill if they just had another attendant.
