I had been running #Openindiana for a #NAS server (supermicro x9dai, #zfs , #serviio , 6xST3000's, and some ssd's) for a couple of years.  I had some ST3000 drives that were dying in one of my zpools so I decide it might be a good time to ditch Openindiana and try zfs on linux.  I went with #ubuntu 14.04 server, #zfsonlinux , and stayed with serviio.  I easily was able to import my existing zfs pools without any issues.  This was back in the beginning of May.  Now, after 41 days, I can say zfs on linux works great for me!!!I

My first attempt to login to healthcare.gov to check it out, "authenticating -- downstream error". Second attempt some hours later, "ERROR 501 DOWNSTREAM". My attempt to use their live chat -- several hours of please wait we are helping other people. Finally several hours later I get "The system is down at the moment".

While at the checkout at Home Depot, the signature terminal asked if I would like an emailed receipt.  I thought, sure... not realizing just how difficult it would be to enter my email address using the tiny circa 1990 keyboard presented on the signature pad.  And it just gets worse,  the at sign (for those that work for Home Depot, it looks like this @ and it is in every email address) is amazingly missing -- oh wait do I hear someone yelling at me -- SHIFT 2!!!!

"The question in this case is whether tribal sovereign immunity bars Michigan’s suit against the Bay Mills Indian Community for opening a casino outside Indian lands. We hold that immunity protects Bay Mills from this legal action. Congress has not abrogated tribal sover- eign immunity from a State’s suit to enjoin gaming off a reservation or other Indian lands. And we decline to revisit our prior decisions holding that, absent such an abrogation (or a waiver), Indian tribes have immunity even when a suit arises from off-reservation commercial activity. Michigan must therefore resort to other mecha- nisms, including legal actions against the responsible individuals, to resolve this dispute."

I predict the end of wireless carrier control of devices within the next two years. The Chinese smartphones will reach the USA market soon and consumers will be able to purchase them outright (no contract, no subsedy) for $200-$300. Some of the phones are outright awesome (Xiaomi) and besides disrupting the carrier cartels, they spell real trouble for Samsung and Apple.

Those phones have their market. There will be more lower end 4G smart phones.

Standing in Port Huron and looking East across the St Clair river at Sarnia, Ontario.  This Mad Max display is quite a contrast to the USA side with the restored river bank and the pristine new Blue Water Riverwalk in Port Huron.
