I'd say the numbers completely make sense over doing it yourself for all the reasons listed by MatthewSt.
In addition you have the fact that these prices tend to decrease year on year. You don't pay for anything you aren't using yet with cloud storage so for a typical use case where you've got an archive that will build up over 5 years and only max out at the end of the 5 years you aren't paying that maximum until the end of the period where the price will have more than halved anyway.
Unfortunately typical in-house projects will demand you pay for the storage array requirements for at least the next 3 years in advance, at today's prices.
Bear in mind this is just for archiving requirements, not Tier1 storage for a DB. The economics of it just make sense provided it matches your requirements.
My wallet has not enjoyed my switch to vaping. I buy new gadgets every week and due to the safety I vape a lot more than I used to smoke :)
When every spectator gets charged for every seat in the stadium because the new ticket licensing contract doesn't recognise skin as a valid human-container.
True. I used to work with someone whose permanent home was Salt Lake City and he told me there really is nothing to do.
He didn't further elaborate along the lines of, "except wanking of course", but I read between the lines.
Stigmatising sex before marriage will lead to an increase in faps. Simple.
Japanese Fart Porn?
Lot's of COTS packages require JBOSS or WAS :/
What we really need to know is whether it can run Crysis.
If only they'd realised they could have bought the data off the UK government for a few bob.
Can't somebody just fire up a copy of Elite II and settle this?
288TB isn't an awful lot to be honest.
It's still never been explained to me why Baxter looked like a female puppet with a stick-on moustache.
This bothers me.
The modern generation are Golgofrinchians compared to their forebears.
Late 2017 is a fair way off. If I could have bought one now I might have been a bit tempted. Looks nice and goes quick (according to spec sheet) certainly.
Is regionally incorrect.
Just reviewed a document that had AaaS standing for Analytics as a Service.
I had to mark the bit where it talked about an 'AaaS-partner' as being unsuitable for issue. In fact I put a ring around it.
Can it really do games? Could I leave my desktop at home at a LAN-party?
(Man, I feel so old saying LAN-party :/)
Fappening I've heard of. Celebgate I've never heard of. Bloody prudeish retcon. Free the Fap!
I WAS the UK's LibDem voter. I feel vindicated now.
Or Soggy Biscuit
When the AI spends all it's time trying to arrange it's Go counters into a cock and balls just for a cheap giggle at the opponent's expense then it will truly be a thing to be respected.
Nostalgia. Catchy theme.
Maxes out at 12 weeks which is definitely more than 45 days. Maybe they are combining it with the other 45 days?
I know of places that break the 12 week rule but they pay much more than the minimum to encourage the workers not to sue.
Chill people (perhaps literally).
I use it. You are free not to.
My Nest already switches on and off depending on whether the phones of the wife and I are in or out. We use the third-party Skylark app at the minute. It's not 100% right and sometimes switches the heating off when we are in so I'll try this instead. However, I suspect it's more to do with our flaky wifi than the App.
I had a DK Tronics Keyboard that I re-housed my previously rubber speccy in. It was quite nice.
That's where there's more than two parties to a Cleveland Steamer isn't it?
I bought a second-hand Thinkpad T430 for the father-in-law, blatted Windows to put Ubuntu 15.10 on (old people and Windows = insta-malware) and put the Canon printer the brother-in-law had bought for him on the wifi network. I was reading up about how to install drivers for it and had about 10 browser windows open to help guide me but then thought I'd just try asking the OS to find a wireless printer on the network. It found it, asked if I'd like to use it, thought for a few seconds, then hey-presto it worked. What's the problem?
What next? Blasphemous websites? Unwelcome news?
Spaffbadgers and pisslamps the lot of them.
Citation based on a non-lolz-email source?
I seem to remember www.molestationnursery.com in the same email.
Ordered a white one.
Nah. Politicians arrived here from the B Ark.
My powers are weak today :(
Couldn't they have just asked him to try to remember the names of the England '66 squad? That should have done the trick.
Oh herro. Great to see you again Hans.
My AA1 simply stopped working after a couple of years. Was OK for the time but Acer build quality is, erm, variable.
Tremendously poor idea. I can't believe Nigel Lawson talked about doing it.
Would it just be retail sales? In that case manufacturers would pay nothing?
If its all sales between companies then it would put products with a long supply-chain at a tremendous disadvantage and have perverse effects on how things get made.
If the tax could be passed between companies to get round the above then how does it differ from VAT?
Some businesses are high-volume and low-margin. They'd be fucked. How would it differentiate?
There's a reason we tax profit rather than revenue and just because there are some drawbacks to this model doesn't mean we should throw it away in favour of something clearly worse.
And their daughter?
Are you from Norfolk?
Sorry. I just kept thinking of this guy:
Tying up a Sky competitor in legal wrangles?
Great title. Have a rep :)
Frog and Parrot was it? Used to serve Roger and Out. Strongest beer in the world at the time ('92-ish.)
Unfortunately my old Uni always seems to be behind these temperance campaigns such as this and minimum alcohol pricing.
I am sorry :(
Does this even apply to anything people still use or is it just tremendous navel-gazing?
Me too. Spooky.
I thought that bananas were only laxative once a good proportion of the starch had ripened to sugar.
Warrants further research in my opinion.
They did know it was going on (the top few) and expressed concern but were gagged. However they did the decent thing of blocking the Snooper's Charter. That puts them leagues above the Tories and Labour in my eyes.
Pity they elected Tim Farron though. He's a cock :(
