I want to like it. I like tons of other Google services. I’m a Google Fan Boy, but I just dont get Wave.
It reminds me of online multiplayer games. It sucks to use alone. I invited some friends, we got on it.. and it’s a chat client? Well at least thats how we used it, it was a rather kludgy chat client. Google Chat group chat is better, using communicator at work is better.
I dont see how to email to it, how to connect it to my gmail.
I’m just a bit stumped on what it is good for. It’s fancy, it’s sexy, but it’s confusing.
Edit: I found out at least some stuff to do with it. Type in “with:public” in the search box, ok now stuff starts to make more sense.
I am intrigued by the seemingly total lack of security though. So is this guy, and he has great points.

We desperately need a server upgrade. We currently have 2 dedicated boxes, and it’s certainly starting to show it’s age. Major problem is space. I need more space to be able to upgrade TR and TF.
So I am putting the pressure on Aharon to buy us something new. Looking at this — http://knownhost.com/dedicated-servers.html
It’s what a site I frequent quite often (tankspot.com) uses, and they have many times our current users, so if it works for them, should work for us.
We can get a nicely configured quadcore i970 box, 12gb ram, 2x500gb drives, for about $300 a month. Only caveate is bandwidth, it comes with 2.5TB. Not sure how much we are currently using. I should look that up.
Biggest issue with that is backups. The drives are not mirrored (ouch!). so what happens if we have a disk failure? (more…)

Sometimes the names of concepts or objects I am describing don’t make it from the abstract in my head, to being thrust upon the world through my most awesome linguistics. Some where along the way my own personal mod_rewrite substitutes them all with “things” and “stuff”. I know 110% what I am referring too, alas my family, collegues and friends often do not.
Perhaps I can slow it down a little and get the correct words to describe the correct concepts out here. I tend to think a lot, and none of it is about what I might be doing right now, so perhaps some of the less complicated abstracts can be written up here.
No set topics, no set agenda, just a collection of things and stuff.
Chances are I’ll forget I set this up in a week anyhow.
I work in security.
