Do Xpect Custard Creams? DXC buys cosy New Jersey data centre, moves in with Credit Suisse

Paul 33


So many questions...…

I was under the impression DXC were on a Data Centre closure and consolidation path, not an acquisition path. So, that's interesting.

I was also under the impression that DXC wanted to move into the Digital Transformation space, not the Tin Hosting space. So, that is also interesting.

Ahhh, well, what do I care, I binned that place a couple of years ago, still love reading articles on them on El Reg though :)

Re: Oh shit!

Whoa, spooky, are you me?

I went through exactly the same process with Evernote. Finally canned it in favour of OneNote late last year.

Now I find out MS are Nerfing OneNote.....*sigh*...looks like I'm going to have to buy back in again.

1oz Gold = 967 GBP.

iPhone X = 6oz.

Give it a couple of years and new iPhones will be worth their weight in gold.

Sacre bleu! Apple's high price, marginal gain iPhone strategy leaves it stuck in the mud

Re: Leave your password everywhere, or just tattoo it on your face

That only works because the Xbox Kinect Sensor is positioned at the focal point of the room.

You mobile is lay flat on the desk or counter looking up. Unless it's touched by the AllSpark and grows limbs to enable it to stand up and look around, nobody is going to want to walk up to the charge point and look down at the phone to register their presence.

As someone considering a move to BSD away from Arch, can you elaborate on what you don't like about the BSD userland stuff?
