Zoom goes boom, Teams tears at seams: Technology stumbles at the first hurdle for this homeworking malarkey

Thumb Up

I noticed that Slack spun up over 300 new media endpoints (call servers) in various EC2 regions, just during this last weekend. One of the advantages of having a cloud infrastructure stack I guess. Capacity seems to be up 300% since December.

Anyone know what that would do to your AWS bill?

Vertigan hands Turnbull a knife, Turnbull carves Vertigan report


Turnbull is always very entertaining in interviews, I'll give him that. Makes a refreshing change from most of the other pollies. I get the impression that Chris Uhlmann gets very close to laughter during most of his interviews. The PM we should have had...

I've no idea about the details contained in this report but it seems to be a complete and utter waste of taxpayers money, much like most of these 'panels'. The government is going to do what it's going to do and these 'reports' just seem to provide a (varying) degree of justification. Or they get completely ignored.

Re: Two Options

+1 for LiquidFiles, decent product and should meet all the requirements that you listed.

You should be able to run-up a demo version for free as well to see if it meets the requirements in your scenario.

*Disclaimer - we're a (small) customer of LiquidFiles.

"Backupify"... it may be just me, but that's a really painful name! Who comes up with these things?

Forget wireless power for phones - Korea's doing it for buses


More lateral thinking - generating electricity

I always wondered about doing this in reverse - use the movement of vehicles over induction loops in the road to generate electricity.

Nor sure about the practicalities of this, no doubt some brighter spark (*ahem*) than me can point out the many and obvious flaws in this cunning plan.
