How Amazon Keeps Cutting AWS Prices: Cheapskate Culture

ZeroConcept Re:Fly Economy - tragic! (146 comments)

For certain services, commoditization makes it very unlikely that your internal organization will be able to compete in cost/quality ratios with specialized service providers. Example: Banks used to manage all aspects of their networking due to downtime impact, nowadays redundant providers can deliver networking with adequate SLAs (contractual, penalised) at lower cost than their internal staff, are there any banks that still lay their own fiber?

Microsoft a Weak Link In Possible Cyber War

ZeroConcept Re:Microsoft's Business (371 comments)

I can't remember who said it, but it gets the point across nicely: "Money is to business what blood is to a human body, you need it to survive but is not the point of your existence."

Navigating a Geek Marriage?

ZeroConcept Re:Forget the books (1146 comments)

That gets you RAID1 (between the server and your wife). for another layer of redundancy with no hardware investment, ask your wife to share your little mishaps with her mother. Far better availability and reliability than the best SAN.

Australian Government Censorship 'Worse Than Iran'

ZeroConcept Re:A friendly warning from an American (516 comments)

You assume the plan was to benefit Americans by invading Irak. It was quite the opposite, the plan was to use tax money to finance operations while profits went to private companies, this is not a new concept.

Understand that modern warfare is ultimately governed by profit of the few at the expense of the masses, the economy was artificially inflated to mask the cost of the war.

Sadly, it is only when personal pockets of comfort are affected that the public at large start to question their government, when is too late.

And even then excuses will be made to defend the mental image that the exploited cling to, it was not my country that did this to me, it was something else.
