If they offered a similar level of service then I could understand but their service sucks. I can't get an HBO Now subscription because I'm in Canada and they sold the rights for their shows to Bell's Crave TV. Ok so I'll get me a Crave TV subscription but I can't do that either because I don't have a cable or satellite subscription with one of the Crave TV partners. So if I want to stream the Sopranos I have to switch cable providers, but all new cable boxes and hope there isn't some some other exclusive I'm missing Yeah..... Not gonna happen.
I still have the book for Zork 2. The pen is toast though.
Better? Yes but still not very good.
Using PostGIS and replication here, works very nicely. Out biggest problem was that be have billions of rows that can't be locked for a huge high traffic mobile app. Using a round robin load balanced pool of postgres servers in hot spare mode as read only DBs solved a lot of issues.
