Look, what you're proposing is as wrong as anything else here. You don't get to decide Aahz's IT needs. Aahz does. If AWS-only solutions works for you, consider yourself lucky, not superior.

Had a power outage this morning, using my cell phone I looked up the outage map.  Apparently National Grid uses amazon for hosting their outage maps.  It worked, I just saw the address was an amazon address and not the National Grid server.

I guess snowflake here didn't like my tone. o_O

Word of advice, let aahz decide if I offended him.

Let kc5tja decide whether Aahz can decide whether LoanShark has offended Aahz with Aahz's decision of hosting solutions that LS doesn't like.

Bottom line here, though, is that one size does NOT fit all.

(By the way: Microsoft does hyperscale better than Amazon. Let that sink in and then let Aahz or LS or kc5tja decide whether your head should explode.)

We'll have to get together and have a pre-meeting meeting to discuss whether and how we can make that decision and if so, who should let whom decide.

It's not up to me if LS's head should explode. Nice thing about snowflakes is they keep their cool.

Actually, Monochrome and I came up with aa drinking game recently. Every time you hear the word "meeting" you need to drink.

So LS just caused me to have another drink.. That works well.

Regarding hosting solutions. One size does not fit all. And clients have different wants and needs. The FDA refuses to audit software of the type we developed. (Nor should they audit it. Has nothing to do with dosing or the medical side of treating patients.) Yet, auditors keep asking our clients if the software is FDA validated.

Just because something makes sense. Or just because something doesn't make sense.. Doesn't mean that people will or will not demand it.

You didn't hear "Meeting" you read "Meeting", unless you have a screen reader and the screen reader said "meeting".  In that case you should go to the "User Meeting" room, and refresh the page.

Holy crap I just saw something annoying.

I was on a web site where any text that you selected with the mouse, automatically generated a popup for you to Tweet that text.

The self-awareness is surprising.

Business in the US seems to require unethical shenanigans. Meh.

Oh, and for Aahz:

I recently received a job opp from Facebook. Don't really want it (lots of commute effort), but may have to take it (wife).

Well, in any case, don't disappear from here once you're employed again, ok?
We like you better when you exist.

The value of your existence is unrelated to politics.
