Submission + - The (

Nevynxxx writes: The BBC reports on a cat given two Peg Legs, after an accident with a rogue harvester. "We have managed to get the bone and skin to grow into the implant and we have developed an 'exoprosthesis' that allows this implant to work as a see-saw on the bottom of an animal's limbs to give him effectively normal gait." So which is it, Cyborg Cat, or Pirate Cat?

Submission + - How to Justify Second Server for SMB

Nevynxxx writes: So, an SMB has a single virtualised server. It obviously runs all mission critical software. IT want to make this redundant, PHBs want justification. Google gives failure rates that basically say, if you have lots of servers, you can expect one to die every X days. But what if you only have one? What statistics are useful for showing the chances for failure? Or would you just focus solely on the consequences? "If it happens it will be this bad.", "how likely is it to happen?", "Errm, don't know." seems like a bad conversation...
