So far the nicest computer set up I have seen,
I just accidentally opened Google Chrome in Windows 8 “Metro” mode and realized it’s basically Chrome OS. Well played Google.
For the last couple of years I have been desperately hooked on Dexter and Breaking Bad. These shows are gritty, dark and full of a certain brand of drama that remains unmatched.
This television season brings the series finales to both of these show. I count the days from one episode to the next. I watch on the edge of my seat as the final pages of each of these stories are turned, slowly making their way to long the sought after conclusions.
However, as I watched in wrapped attention something starts to become painfully obvious. My beloved main characters whom I have watched grow and take shape on the small screen have all gone FUCKING STUPID!
I sincerely feel that the writers of these shows have just given up as they close the final chapters to these otherwise amazing shows. I am finding that both Dexter Morgan and Walter White have suddenly found a conscious that never existed before. Characters that I admired for the rationale, their level headed-ness, their unbreakable wills have suddenly become retarded bowls of shit brained pudding.
Why won’t the writers just let me be happy. Why can’t Walter just off everyone that has become a problem (including that loose cannon, Pinkman) and ride off into the sunset like a bad ass cowboy. Why can’t Dexter have his cake and eat it too, he is supposed to be killing bad guys not trying to save some one else’s dumb emotional mother.
This is the kind of stuff that makes me so mad about television nowadays. Every ending is a cop out, no happy or expected endings. Just some dumb twists to throw the whole story in the shitter leaving me feeling violated.
The last time I felt this way, I had invested so much time into Prison Break only to have Scofield die in the stupidest most unrelated-to-the-whole-series way possible.
So to all the writers out there, aspiring to have the kind of success these shows have enjoyed, please, PLEASE, give me just one bad ass, riding into the sunset ending where the character I am rooting for wins all the chips.
In the past my employer had is held up at the office to learn from VMware consultant. We were brought up to speed on Vsphere, VMware’s Converter and a house of other things.
Aside from the awesome power and ease which VMware has allowed us to manage or infrastructure what I was really impressed with was Vmotion. What Vmotion allows you to do is move a virtual machine from one physical location to another; while never having to suspend or owe down the virtual machine.
Knowing how impossible that should be we tested it out. We spun up a virtual web server, Had it send pings to our laptops, write stuff to the logs and pinged it from our laptops. If there were any misstep we would catch it. The move was commenced and took the virtual machine, not just from one partition, disk or volume to another, but from one rack t another.
The move was complete after about five minutes. The results were amazing. The connections were never dropped in either direction. Not a single packet was lost during the transition. The only question i have for VMware is: “What kind of black magic are they using to accomplish this feat?”
