MrJerryNormandinSir The US is quickly devolving into a socialistic... (780 comments)

police state! It's time to stand up for what we believe in. It's time for our voices to be heard. We can't be passive citizens anymore. As each week passes we loose more and more of our rights as American Citizens.

I think we should seriously design an underground internet, just in case we need it.

I'm going to a "tea party" gathering on July 4th.

Shell Ditches Wind, Solar, and Hydro

MrJerryNormandinSir They are scamming people by selling ... (883 comments)

hey.. have your driven by your local shell station?
WTF is with the Nitrogen enriched fuel they are selling? Big deal.. they are blowing air bubbles into fuel, this means you are buying less gasoline because the air bubble are taking up some volume.

When I buy gasoline I will but it minus the nitrogen enrichment. I'll let my engine aspirate on it's own. ... if I want more I'll add a cold air induction system.. hmm. that might be a cool summer project :)

It would be interesting to compare the MPG of Shell vs. Mobil

nevermind citgo or gulf.. I get terrible mpg with that.. 26mpg, with Mobil I get 30mpg.

The London Stock Exchange Goes Down For Whole Day

MrJerryNormandinSir Using Microsoft for a 5-nines SLA? Is that a joke? (792 comments)

That was the their first mistake. What were they thinking? You need a 3 highly available Unix clusters with three SANs. You need three to elect a quorum. If you don't know what a quorum is you shouldn't be attempting to design system that is supposed to deliver on a 5-nine SLA. Each geographic location should include 1 cluster and 1 SAN. All three locations networked with dark fiber. fiber routing should be set up so that a cluster can fail over to a SAN in another location. As far as Hardware is concerned, I would go with a cluster of IBM P6-570 and use an EMC Symmetrix DMX SAN at each site.
Who the heck designed this? .Net trading platform.. I have to laugh! Microsoft .net = 5.none SLA! .Net is only good for people who would like to create a light duty website. Under a load it breaks. The London Stock Exchange proves my point.
