Re: Well, still an idiot
He's an utter idiot. I got the .org[asm] pun instantly, as would many of their customers, and appreciate it.

WHOIS should just be taken behind the shed and shot. Anyone who thinks that kind of personal information should be publicly available, in this day and age, is an idiot. If anyone's up to no good on their domain then there should be a process for the police to get the info from the registrar - it doesn't need to be public. My WHOIS registration for my domain shows my old address and an old phone number. And ICANN can go swing if they want to show my current info to the world.
Just saying - We like giving the finger to the French and they equally enjoy giving the finger to us "rosbifs". Friendly rivalry. But Agincourt (or to give it it's proper name Azincourt) is a bit on the nose while we're trying to build a new relationship with the rest of Europe.
They can make the most of the kit they have in the smallest space. VMware can run multiple systems on one hardware box instead of having a whole bunch of seperate servers taking up space. Subs don't have the room for racks of servers, they're cramped as it is. I know because I know someone who's a sub driver and I got a tour once.
It landed for some people last night UK time. I was round a mate's yesterday afternoon and wanted to show him something on the net. Fired up his PC early evening and got (paraphrasing) updating please don't switch off, etc. I knew what was going on so didn't bother actually reading the words. He told me the PC had been trying to do "whatever" since the previous day. Finally after a beer and a fag it finally fired up and there was a whole "Welcome to Windows Creator Update" marketing blurb before I could get to the desktop. Which I also naturally didn't read. All he was interested in when I explained was if Stardock Start 10 was still working. He nearly threw the PC out of the window when first introduced to the Win8/Win10 interface.;-)
I suspect Musk may be a fan of the "Soft Landing" opening sequence of the Heavy Metal movie (animation film 1980). A 57 Chevvy, released from a shuttle making re-entry with an astronaut at the wheel.
Sounds crazy but it's cool as hell with some great music!
