With Reveille VIII
So you are in a bar with fellow engineers and the conversation comes around to systems management.
The nostalgic past is remembered when the system was like a rich agricultural county with wheat farmers caring for and growing wheat in most of the fields.
In a little corner was a patch of farms growing corn with corn farmers caring for them.
So the new system is chaotic. There are new fields with hybrid combinations of wheat and corn and the corn farmers are being asked to tend wheat and, in some instances, the wheat farmers are forced to tend corn.
So as for myself, as a corn farmer in this metaphor, I agree I was perfectly content managing corn and I hate having to care about and tend to the wheat.
Darn that wheat.

Yep. Totally uncomfortable in there.

Not so sure about this concept
Can you spot what changes?
It was also the 10 year anniversary of the formation of Google Platforms which is responsible for building, developing, testing, deploying, and debugging Google's vast production infrastructure.
Since I was hired in July of 2007 I was not there at the start, but I have been slogging it out for the big G for more than half of this 10 year run (so far)

I should mention Googlers are allowed to bring dogs to work but not other kinds of animals
So you could say Google is pro-dog

I am surprised they did not mention the 8-9 times militants tried to blow up Musharraf's car while he was running the show.
Often the effort was thwarted by cell phone jamming gear provided by the U.S. that prevented cell phone detonation from operating properly.
Looks like this time the time but for when the car was expected to pass by which is a hit or miss proposition (mostly miss)
A roadside bomb exploded on the route taken by former Pakistani ruler Pervez Musharraf, but he had already passed by and was unhurt, his aides and police said.
By the way I have not read the ordinace, but I pretty sure it is not called the "Google Bus Law"
Opponents of the tech shuttles lost an environmental appeal of the plan to charge the buses $1 per stop per day.
Pretty much the same sort of thing going on these days...
Protecting the Economy from wildly risky investment banking practices

The service drove the datacenter deployments for a number of years (and still does to a certain degree)
When Gmail launched 10 years ago with 1 gigabyte of storage, most people thought it was an April Fools' Day prank.
I am sure this is already a widely known thing since it has been a couple months now.
Still worth repeating
Wish it was just an April Fool's Joke...
