My PC use accounts for __% of my computing time

dan2550 Hard to tell. (296 comments)

50% maybe? I use my laptop for browsing, and as a glorified thin client. Almost all of the work I do is over ssh on my server now. Cloud computing can't be beat when you own the cloud.

Ask Slashdot: Dealing With University Firewalls?

dan2550 Re:My ass (582 comments)

It's the principal of the matter. If your service is based on the premise of anonymity you shouldn't fold to the cops unless required by law. Even then you shouldn't record any data of substance that can be used to prosecute customers.

White House Wants Devastating Cuts To NASA's Mars Exploration

dan2550 I feel betrayed. (422 comments)

This was not the candidate I voted for and certainly not the one I will vote for next election. For a man who ran on the promise of hope and change, I expected more. The space race was a huge factor in the technological revolution and gave hope to so many Americans when nuclear war seemed more of a matter of when than a matter of if. We need that same hope today. I desperately wish I could be proud to be American again.

Ask Slashdot: Best Inexpensive VPS Provider?

dan2550 Re:Danger, Will Robinson (375 comments)

I just moved to FDC (for colo, not vps) and they have been really fast in the tickets I've opened. I'm a little disappointed that they don't offer *any* DoS mitigation, but even on weekends they are really quick to respond. They even gave me the numbe for their NOC so I can call them directly if I need a reboot.

VMware, a Falling Giant?

dan2550 Xen (417 comments)

I recently built a new server and decided to go with Xen using HVM. Although this is mainly a personal project, I can't really see the point in purchasing closed source software when the open source alternatives support everything I need and more. I admittedly am pretty new to this game but what advantages can I get from VMware when Xen runs a VPS totally seamlessly?
