General Discussion / Lowering the drinking age in the US?
« on: August 19, 2008, 01:24:51 pm »

Not really too much of a big deal. Your going to be exposed to it either way.

Although i'm pretty sure its going to have a negative impact on youth.

General Discussion / Music that sets you in the working mood.
« on: August 12, 2008, 01:22:28 pm »
I got a new project and was very unmotivated to do it. I started to listen to some techno music while piddling around with it and really got into it. Do you guys have any specific genre that you listen to while coding / working?

General Discussion / Listening to music at work
« on: July 10, 2008, 07:23:27 am »
Since I work at a big corporation, they do not allow us to keep music on our PC's (for obvious legalities). I came across this neat little website called, which uses a embedded media player -- and from what I see its coded in flex -- and manages your playlist for you, free. Most of the songs on there are full tracks, so its basically having your music drive stored remotely.

Check it out!

General Discussion / Time Traveling? Hoax indeed but read...
« on: July 09, 2008, 06:29:42 pm »

Many of you may have stumbled across this website in the past but I had to post it. There are stories from people who claim that they have "traveled thru time" and have intricate stories via their forum posts. It's worth a read if you want to kill some time at work or are bored at home.

General Security Information / Disturbing Operations Call?
« on: July 09, 2008, 01:16:56 pm »
Every morning, we have what we call the Operations Call, which we discuss our critical systems and what we can do to maintain uptime. This morning it was brought up that I have Google Analytics installed on one of our main web pages, just to see what offices a majority of the traffic is coming from.

Someone on an Application Administration team calls me out on me having Google Analytics installed on my page, and demands to know what ports on the firewall it opens (lol). It ended up that at the end of the argument we were going back and forth about open source programs. The app. admin claims that open source is evil then proceeds to link me to a wiki page. That is when I realized that whatever I say he is going to try to make himself feel better that he knows "more". So I shutup and ended the call in laughter with my team.

But besides this, for those of you who work in the industry, how are your critical systems setup? I can only tell you little about ours but we indeed have mirrored drives and 2 different backbone connections coming in. Any suggestions into making a machine more of a 24/7 system? What kind of hardware do you have setup? How big of a backbone do you have and how many are incoming? And on top of that, is there anything else I can use to monitor traffic with ease rather than google analytics? Since this is an intranet application, I like to make sure that people that are outside are using our VPN to connect or else we have a major breach :(

Introductions! / Hello!

Thanks Nelson. :-X
