Comment Eliminate the outdated identity (Score 1) 136

The soul too, not just the ego. Then you will be happy.

It is now practicable for any human being to be totally free from malice and sorrow, the two fundamental elements which prevent one from being happy and harmless. Gone now are the days of having to assiduously practice humility and pacifism in an ultimately futile attempt to become free by transcending the opposites ... the traditional and narrow path of denial and fantasy, negation and hallucination. A wide and wondrous path of blitheness and gaiety is now available for one who wishes to live the freedom of the actual.

Actual freedom is a tried and tested way of being happy and harmless in the world as it actually is ... stripped of the veneer of normal reality or Greater Reality which is super-imposed by the psychological and/or psychic entity within the body. This entity is that feeling of identity which inhibits any freedom and sabotages every well-meant endeavour. Thus far one has had only two choices: being normal or being spiritual. Now there is a third alternative ... and it supersedes any humanistic philosophical worldview and/or any mystical Altered State Of Consciousness.

Really good rant you got going on there. Where do I start? People owe trillions on their credit cards and can't buy anything so the economy is tanking. Seems like whatever they SPENT those trillions on didn't help much so why would spending trillions more help. Poor people can't grow an economy? Worked pretty good for China. How did all those poor immigrants to America build a great nation when all they did was grow food, build houses, cloth themselves, and have babies?

Human labor creates wealth, The rich just collect a small amount from the labor of the masses, just like a beekeeper collects honey from a hive. They enjoy riches they themselves couldn't create. Most people create enough food and shelter for themselves and will gladly trade some of their overproduction for luxuries or entertainment. You get too much than you have to budget for an army to protect it.

For years stocks were traded as fast a clerk could write down the orders. Couldn't someone code a human clerk emulator program. Have real robots crowed around the big board, would be entertaining.

Then we have taxes. The rich have already collected some wealth, simply re leave them of about half of it. Money is power you know. Help the poor and middle class fund needed projects. They can pay some taxes too, not much, but it adds up.

Stop watching TV and restrict your comments to things that happen in the real world.

The 40 hour work week can be traced back to Ford Motors, who found that by working 40 hour weeks

Uh, the 8 hour day can be traced, in American history, to labor agitation going back to the 1830s. The AFL made an 8 hour day part of its platform in 1886. The United Mine Workers won an 8 hour day through collective bargaining in 1898, and many organized skilled trades won an 8 hour day around this period. Citing Ford as the creator of the 8 hour day is like saying John Glenn invented powered flight. Ford, at best, was an 8-hour day concern troll who undertook the change to mollify trade unionists who were attempting to organize the auto industry at the time.

Who the fuck are you to tell someone else what they can and can't do.

Well, the capitalist/propertarian status quo ante is based on the idea that "you can tell someone else what they can and can't do" if you're an employer, because you own. Trade unionism is a reaction to that, it's based on the idea that a union can tell someone else what they can and can't do because it has strength in numbers, and it fights for a just cause: for a fair and equitable stake for labor. Both positions are founded in moral sentiments.

This shithead mentality is why states started with the whole right-to-work thing, effectively destroying the functionality of the union.

The "right-to-work thing" traces its roots to the fact that wage-earning is considered socially low-status in the south, to the extent that politicians could kick factory workers in the teeth and nobody would raise a finger in protest. There was also the fear at the time that African-Americans would begin to join unions, as the racist attitude that had prevailed in organized labor through the first half of the century abated, and that they would serve as a cradle for racial "agitation" and activism.

Comment Horizontal Scaling At Variable Times (Score 1) 164

The cloud is good if you have to spin up servers to horizontally scale if you have a user load spike on (frequent) occasion. Rather than have a bunch of servers really doing nothing most of the time you can have a one or a small number most of the time which is relatively cheap, and then spin up 100 or whatever when needed then shut them down again. You only pay for them when they are running.

However you do need to look at it critically, like all things. If for example, you only ever spin up at most say five servers, and the cost of the one or two you always have running eventually exceeds the cost of owning and operating five boxes, then you might as well just run them yourself. However if the price of renting them (errrrrrr running them) on the cloud is cheaper or more convenient (which can be worth something monetarily), then run them there.

There are also some other reasons you might want to use the cloud instead of your servers. For example, in the case of Amazon S3, or Azure Blob Storage, etc. sometimes it is the delivery time of static content (like images or other files) that might be what you are gaining. Running things on your own server you might not have the response times you want, creating too much latency for your customers. By response time I mean the length of time your servers can locate the image on disk, marshal it into whatever stream/protocol it needs to be in, and serve over the internet to some client on the other side of the world. Services like S3 are highly optimized for serving static content like that (from my understanding from when they were first building it, often storing it optimized to go directly on the wire... kind of like pre-marshalling the files), and additionally you can associate the static content (stored on S3 or blob storage) with a content deliver network that will cache your content on servers around the globe to further improve performance.

There are a lot of good reasons for using the cloud. And there are a lot of bad reasons. If you use the cloud, make sure you are using the good ones. :)

With azure and services like azure i can scale in many ways much more easily too. I can scale up load balancers, i can scale out mirroring and regional file access (content delivery) and i can do everything through an API so i can spinup/shutdown services dynamically..

If you're the owner of a line of business app that you can host on azure, isn't a 110 bucks a month a bit easier to budget than say trying to get capital approval on a server, server support, server installation, provisioning and bandwidth and capacity/power/cooling research done? Also, if you want to scale up on demand where only 10 days a year you need a second server, that is easily done without having to deploy your own infrastructure.

If you have your own local virtualized infrastructure and services, i'm sure your local costs are still probably as high or higher than the costs outsourced to azure, amazon, google, ibm or whomever you choose simply because they have economies of scale most could never dream to achieve internally without spending hundreds of millions to mimmic..
