Apparently, adding sage to their diet can significantly reduce methane/bloat.

It means grass-grazing, yes.

What does "naturally fed" mean? I understand grass fed, but one could

argue that all cattle feed is "natural", including that which consists

of ground up cows...

My eight year old has managed to get philosophical/scientific enough to conclude that there is no such thing as artificial, because everything has to be made from something.

I suppose that I'm "naturally fed" too ... I love eating ground up cows :)

Hmmmm... ground up cow is good, but most folk around here seem to like sliced cow even better...

Assuming, that is, that the slices are thick and 'prime'....

Not so good when fed to other cows. ;)

When I first saw that (on DVD), it sorta blew my mind just how completely wrong it was, from the puns, to what they were actually doing.

Assuming also, that the slices are taken from a spherical cow of uniform density.

Evidently we need to invoke RTOOS more because not everyone knew its meaning right away!

Any failure of a computing workload which is running on Windoze *must* be blamed on Windoze. The solution to fixing any such issue is to Remove The Offending Operating System. RTOOS.

Ah, thanks for the explanation.

Unfortunately, I think the offender is the mail client... and the OS is mandatory for this client of mine...

I stopped paying attention to "All Natural" labels when said labeled products included high fructose corn syrup. If I care about what's in the food, I'll look at the ingredients list, not the package labeling.

Someone suggested recently that the difference between a server farm and a cloud is like the difference between pets and livestock: pets are named, and when they get sick you nurse them back to health; livestock are numbered, and when they get sick you shoot them.

Seems like a worldview peddled by the big retail cloud vendors. Personally I don't mind having a broken virtualization server repaired. If implemented correctly, even the smallest cluster of virtualization servers is useful for divorcing the compute workload from the hardware it runs on. Hardware upgrades need not force reinstallation of operating systems and guest applications.

Furthermore, virtualization is the ultimate "sandbox" model. Who would dare run an unstable application like Exchange on the same server as any other workload? With virtualization it's safely sandboxed away in its own guest operating system.

That's the "private cloud" model.

In a sufficiently large datacenter, some piece of hardware, somewhere, is going to fail more often than you like, as a matter of statistics. The cloud model helps with this by automating the provisioning and deployment of the replacement hardware.

Netflix invented the Chaos Monkey (and, soon, the Chaos Gorilla) to improve resilience to failure by deliberately *causing* failure. In production.
