Being able to easily deploy and scale services would be a big help, frankly -- if I could ever convince the Kool-aid drinking anti-PC Penguinistas that control our network to agree to such a system.

So What's This Then?
And here it is. Another blog. Seems like everyone has one these days. Except me. ...Until now. So yeah, I've finally decided to enter the blogosphere, whatever that is. It's not like there's anything roundish about the folks who write blogs. Except maybe near the belly. Ahem. Where was I? Oh, yes, blogging. So yeah, I'm blogging now.
