Knots per hour

since a knot is one nautical mile per hour, then a knot per hour is: one nautical mile per hour per hour - which would be a measure of acceleration.

I heard elsewhere that some guy watching it had a heart attack. Am I a bad person for finding that funny?

A couple of notes:

Nuclear Lotto

I remember way back when I was a young man (the nineties) there was a fuss down here in little old NZ about a US missle test that could hit us. A comedy show called it Nuclear Lotto - the game where you wake up in the middle of the night and exclaim "what the f**k was that?!?"

DDOS is nothing compared to official incompetence



in short: the FBI was investigating someone. Went to their (cloud) host and took the entire data centre down. Several other companies who just happened to be using the same host went out of business.

The moral: many baskets. Not just different data centres, use different companies (and have copies somewhere you can physically get to them). In fact if you can, host your systems on different planets.
