My question is who is getting the money for these PDFs. If the original authors are getting a percentage, great. If it's just going into Hasbro's general revenue, screw them. It's just a last ditch attempt to monetize assets that otherwise have little value to the company, many of which they didn't even produce.

I also messed around with Servio, Plex and some other open source DLNA servers. I found that the best DLNA option was Wild Media Server which will run fine in Wine on your Ubuntu box. That shit just worked with my Sony Bravia without a lot of hassle and the license for WMS is only 15 bucks.

I've noticed this seems to be a chronic problem with the Gen-Y guys we hire. If they can't lean back in their chair and savagely click at shit with their mouse to get things working, they say it's "impossible" or "too hard". What ever happened to being able to delve into a problem to figure out the underlying cause? I'm sure they're capable of it, but I don't know if they just haven't been taught how to do this, or it's just simply that they're too fucking lazy.

You're thinking of non-enterprise applications where having a couple host servers is all you need. In this case, any shit-tier cheap VM solution will do.
vSphere's clustering architecture provides management and business continuity that can scale to hundreds or even thousands of workloads.

I live in the Yukon. Only one of our communities, Old Crow, is on a satellite uplink. Everywhere else in the territory is linked by either fiber or a microwave shot. However, in the NWT and Nunavut they have many remote communities like Old Crow that don't even have road access, and therefore satellite is the only realistic option.
