had one a few weeks ago. Never had fever+chills before. Interesting experience for that. The rest was 6 days or horribleness. Lost 10# tho.

Always liked Chappelle, but I love most stand up.

I hope to be there next year. Will try to give a presentation if anyone wants to attend.

Also, if any of you guys have questions or stuff on the AWS services, ping me, I can try to help you out if you need any.

Cool. Thanks Chemosh.

 Yup. It's s bit crazy. Cisco live was much more organized. This feels more free for all, for everything.

Probably not but let's grab a beer. I know there's a Riot contingency here but I can't sit in on their talk. Competes with something I need to see more. Good luck.

Yeah, when firing on all cylinders, we're a top 5 team. We have not fired on all cylinder yet. Yes, Fournette is a fucking man amongst boys, but if you hang it all on him we will lose and/or he will get hurt. He's a good kid and deserves some NFL money as soon as he can get it. QB play by the younger Harris has been decent. He's barely got any touch on the short throws, though he has made some improvement from the none he showed last year. His receivers need to represent better if they want more passes to come their way - which we need to open up the running game in the SEC. Luckily we have a few more girl scout games until we get to the meat of the SEC, but we won't know how good we really are until then.

This FINALLY got situated about a week ago. There were some firewall issues, then routing issues, but I finally got all the Boss' data backed up, and some old projects with large data sets backed up. Haven't checked ACLs yet. I still need to make a replica of our main file server, then see if I should keep running nightly Robocopy scripts from a Windows server, or see if rsync would be best with 2 SMB shares on a Mac Mini.

Sweet. I get to be a guinea pig. Well, it's really just a hedge against total failure of the, probably, 10 year old NetApp going tits up. At the end of the day, if I saved the data I could probably still come out a hero, since current leadership let us get to this point anyway.

I'll let you know how it goes whenever I get a test run going.

Oh, and I'm not sure how long I will carry the VDI torch. I won't have access to $$$ until I am named Lead after the end of year, but I am betting we pay a shitload to maintain it properly. Once we lose another ~80 people, it may just not be worth it. Once I consolidate workloads to using all the same management tools, plus modular imaging, I think I can easily pick up a lot of the benefits that VDI gives (us). I could always spin up an occasional desktop VM on the server nodes, to support external collaborators that need access to our infrastructure and software. Also, with the money saved, I might try to implement a desktop backup solution, which seems weird why we never had one before, since we are a data centric business. I won't even mention that I don't think we properly license our virtual workloads to begin with.... Another place that money could be used.

Thanks for jumping in Truf, I was hoping you would swing by, too. Any thoughts on the ACLs surviving CIFS to CIFS copies, when one location is on another/outside storage location? Have you ever done this for a customer (IIRC you're a CoLo admin?)

So, it looks like ExtremeIO and Nimble are offering similar benefits? Ability to scale both up and out, as needed. What else may I be missing? Also, how will hyperconverged architectures affect this market segment? Seems like vSAN might compete here too, with on-board SSD's in your compute nodes, yes?

which FF thread do you freaks want stickied?

The problem is, this:
Less than 7% of the private sector benefit from anything you have googled

is not true, or rather is an effect of:

Unions get "smeared" because of the host of things I've pointed out. Union membership will be lower again next year because of how terrible they are.

It's disconcerting that you or AD even question my  point that unions aren't situational and they aren't for a specific type of worker. They either work, or they don't. Currently they don't.

Yes, I'm willing to agree that only 7% of the work force is in Unions, but they have definitely benefited from Unions of Christmas past. That's the issue here.
