Re: Change in backup strategy

My thoughts exactly. Terabytes of system images, any of which could be suspect? Dumb data plus a set of system provisioning scripts wins on a lot of levels. Of course not all system easily configs are scriptable.

JavaScript is everywhere. So are we all OK with that?

Re: “the assembly language for the web”

The writer seems think this phrase is complimentary. It emphatically was not intended that way by the guy who coined it (James Gosling? not sure). He meant that it's a reasonable compilation target but that nobody in their right mind would choose it as a source code language (sorry assembly language guy). So the analogy actually is quite apt given what he was trying to say.
