Oh noes!

Well, I'm Scottish, and I don't give a deep fried mars bar if the Germans are taking the piss.

Could someone tell the SNP to stop making an arse of themselves, please?

Is this a joke?

That is absolutely and undeniably the worst car design that has ever been thought of.

I have nothing further to say on this matter.

Boat.

I've said 'boat' in my head too many times and now the word's lost its meaning.

Loving the Solaris Zones

5 minute no-interaction install for a new environment (with Jumpstart/JET :) ).

Use bugger-all resources (7 Oracle and 7 SAP instances in seperate VMs on one 64GB RAM box? Sure, why not.).

Flash-archive installs to move hardware OSes (even from ancient beige-box Solaris 8/9 hosts) to VMs without the applications noticing they've been moved.

Cluster aware.

No VM license issues.

Need a sly Wiki set up? Slap a zone on a development box and get your mod-php on.

Want to test some LDAP changes before rollout? Flash-archive a live box into a zone and see if everything works.

Happy days. I recommend it.
