It'll be easier to organise flash mobs in prison
Even easier when everybody wears the same outfit! :-)

...and access that the average person doesn't have, eh?
Hopefully, the next U.S. President makes a discreet enquiry and suggest to NASA that GOOG founders' jets might be better parked on a non-government owned property.
Heck, these rich chaps could even buy up some land, get it zoned appropriately, put on a private runway, put up some large hangars, get FAA approval and certification, then move their jets there! It's not like they're hurting for money, eh? Money's the only lubrication that works better than oil. :-)
...for that mental midget to just donate $69,000 in the first place and skip the attacks?
Either way, he would have been out $69,000 but had he done it as a voluntary donation minus the attacks, he wouldn't have been a convicted felon.
That's going to be a conversation starter and resume enhancer, all right.
...how they back up that thing! Must be using 10 Gbps links to the backup server(s) and using a fairly large tape library. LTO-5 coming out next year should do about 900 GB per tape with hardware compression at up to 160 MB/sec. That would be capable of about 5.9 PB at 6881 tape drives and 192 frames. You'd need 26 entire LTO-5 libraries just for 150 PB! And that's not factoring in any data growth, either.
Doing any large scale restores must suck, too. :-)
I see they apparently design their rate plans in favour of the poor; why didn't they advertise their benevolent intentions earlier to save them the PR disaster?
Seeing as to how generous they pretend to be, they might consider reducing their rates, which surely, would benefit the poor.
