Comment Re:The basest, vilest (Score 1) 1017

Where are my mod points when I need them? Trump is just feeding more half truths to the media, and getting attention as a result. This re-enforces the beliefs of his base, and feeds the flames on the anti Hillary crowd. The Republicans have done a very good job of whipping up the anti Hillary rhetoric over the last four years, making this kind of thing easy for who ever was nominated. Trump just takes it to a lower lever than most.

Besides, they'll just let someone else pick up the tab for their healthcare.

And therein lies the problem, I get to pay for someone's poor lifestyle. It would be nice to have a healthcare penalty on smoking, drinking, and eating processed foods such as this.

I'm not aware of any crushing weight problems in the steel server racks...

For most server racks. probably not as there is a log of empty space in standard servers. Here at $WORK, we have a MAID array for archival storage. Since the drives in the unit only spin up (and get hot) when needed, the array contains many more drives than a standard disk array. This makes the unit quite heavy, and could overload the floor on some buildings. Luckily, this is on the first floor, so it won't come crashing through the ceiling.

Except he has a point. Some organizations still have an investment in a Solaris infrastructure. For some small to mid sized companies the M series are a too expensive for what you get, while the T3 is too underpowered for a database. Hopefully the T4 will try to fill that gap, especially in the price category. Will the T5 eat into other platforms? I have my doubts there as I think this is all in the 'too little too late' category.

It's too bad really, as Solaris is a nice OS. Time to work on yet another career course alteration.
