Geek

Jaded

These days I read High Scalability about how the world's largest websites manage their data, and I think, Oh, is that all?

28TB of MySQL?  100 billion rows?  We* added that much when we put a new feature into the latest release of one of our products.  We're adding storage in quarter-petabyte increments.

* At my day job.

1 250 Terabytes of storage sounds preposterous, on first look. But then I realized that I've got 14 terabytes sitting here on my desk top, just for hobby purposes.

As someone whose paychecks happen because people buy piles of HDDs, thanks a petabyte!

Obi Wan Pixy, I hate to tell ya this, but I'm getting the "bandwidth exceeded" message when I try to read Blather Review.  Any way of making my wonderful world of crossword solving available again?  Pretty please with a cherry on top? :-D
