this is underfaksink at its worzt - pb:
Petr, I have no idea what you mean, but thank you. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
@Kol .. :] that, partially, might have been the purpose.... I don't know it exactly either. :] .. was I reflecting on a cat under the fax, and that it is hard to fax that way ... /?:] ... "underfaxing at its worst" .. - pb:
Ah, OK, Petr. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
there ya have me ! :] .... see, to be honest with you, i saw this pic couple days ago, but i let it go, without posting it ..... what does that make me? :] - pb:

Fax, Petr. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
even a flat cat... faxes just can't handle the hair. You'd have to shave the cat first, else the hair will burn and stick to the drum... a mess! (I am extrapolating from transparencies, mind, i don't have access to a cat to test) - Iphigenie
Hehe, Joelle. This is now tied for the 'likes' top stop. One more then, hehe. :-) - Kol Tregaskes

Am I the only one who saw this and their first thought was - My goodness did someone break that cats neck? It still freaks me out a little - Steve C, Team Marina
Steve, it does look a little out of place, but cats are pretty bendy. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
They fax much better if you flatten them first. What? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
LOL, Kevin. - Kol Tregaskes
i can also imagine the cat going there cause it is snug and warm - Iphigenie
Ey, it would be a tad warm on there, especially after a long working day. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Caption which needs to be said aloud: Uh Ohz, I'm totally FAXED! - sofarsoShawn

Intel seeks new 'microserver' standard | Deep Tech - CNET News -
"The computer industry is in constant tension between proprietary designs and standards that anyone may use.

Intel's primary business, selling processors, benefits more from the latter when it comes to cultivating a new server market segment." - Greg Lato from Bookmarklet

Thomas Hawk
Bernie Madoff gets 150 years in prison, maximum allowable sentence.
Right before issuing the sentence, the judge pointed out that when a widow's husband had a heart attack and the widow went to him that he put his arm around her and told her that her money would be safe. This sentence likely ensures that Madoff spends the rest of his life in jail. - Thomas Hawk
Traders on the stock exchange floors cheered from the floor when the sentence was announced. The courtroom also erupted in applause when the sentence was announced. - Thomas Hawk
Judge called Madoff: "extraordinarily evil." - Thomas Hawk
Thank God. Now they should go after his sons and wife. - John Flynn
Judge noted that there wasn't a single letter of support from anyone in his file. No friends, no family, even his wife did not write a letter asking for leniency. - Thomas Hawk
His defense team had been arguing for a 12 year sentence. - Thomas Hawk
"Justice" may have been served, but all his investors still don't have their money back... - Greg Lato
One down, hundreds more to go... - Holger Eilhard
the coverage in Magazine has been awesome! Not only Madoff but ALL those goddam Crooks on Wall Street!! This Old Boys Network has somewhat been exposed for what it is + every Stinkin' CEO + Lawyer + Accountant + VIP of EVERY Fortune 500 Company + on down has been Playing this Game Forever!! It's a Bloody Joke!! - Billy Warhol
Jeffry Picower netted over $5 billion personally off Madoff above and beyond what he invested between December 1995 and December 2008. - Thomas Hawk
his wife Ruth Madoff wasn't in the courtroom when the decision was announced. Wonder how long until she's kicked out of the Park Avenue Apartment. - Thomas Hawk
Good. Now let's impose similar penalties on corporate fraudsters, the CEOs who lie about their books and rip off investors just as badly as Madoff did. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
I believe that one of the settlement stipulations is that he wife loses the NY Penthouse along with most of his and her money. I believe she will be left with about $2.5M. - Jeff P. Henderson
that's what they said today that her settlement lets her keep $2.5 million. I bet investors will still try to go after that money though. Clarke, I seriously doubt he'll ever get out with a 150 year sentence. Even with good behavior he'll probably be in there until he dies. - Thomas Hawk

Down To Business: This 'Gateway Recession' Must Transform IT -- IT And The Downturn -
"This recession will be particularly disruptive for the business technology organizations that underpin the digital economy. In the previous post-dot-com recession, IT was taken to the woodshed for a lesson in fiscal responsibility--the calculus of ROI and the art of "doing more with less." Today's recession calls for a much deeper and more disruptive self-evaluation, where tech organizations must (finally) reduce the 70% to 80% of their budgets that goes to system upkeep to free up more money for investments that tilt the competitive playing field." - Greg Lato from Bookmarklet

Cloud Computing Vs. $100 Million Data Center - Plug Into The Cloud - InformationWeek -
"Yet, it's hard to fathom why such a tech-smart group would sink $100 million into a data center construction project at the same time that many others see the emergence of on-demand cloud computing services as a faster, better, cheaper alternative, one not requiring capital investment, bulldozers, and hydroelectric gear." - Greg Lato from Bookmarklet
I'm wondering if this author even understands what the "cloud" is. The cloud is a bunch of computers running in data centers! And both Cisco and EMC are already cloud providers, does this author not realize that Cisco owns WebEx and EMC owns Moxy? - Greg Lato
