Few bits of technology trivia

I never stopped to think just how much digital data is generated each day. Currently, 1,287,671,232,877 Megabytes are generated every 24 hours. I wonder who is storing the data, where is it stored, and how is it stored.

Virtual servers are a hot item for data centers. What is scary is that an InformationWeek poll found that 27% of data center engineers are using the "wink and a prayer" method of managing those servers.

Man on the Moon? NOT!!


As I was watching some of the space station coverage a few days ago on either public tv or, my mind was jolted back to reality about our lunar missions.

There is no possible way that we ever sent men to the moon for some very solid scientific reasons.

-> Our technology today is very advanced, yet we have a very hard time launching s Space Shuttle.

-> The round trip distance to the moon and back is a very high (and unbelievable) statistic. Just the amount of fuel consumed in the non-gravity portion of the trip was approximately 30,000 kilograms - to travel a roundtrip track of 1.7 million kilometers.

-> A radiation field exists between Earth and the moon that is so strong that we currently do not have the technology to get human beings through without killing them.

I am not a super right wing conspiracy nut, but we must open our eyes and not let the government control the press (radio & TV). I am sorry if I have offended anyone - it's not our fault that the govenment faked this to give us a fake technological advantage in the world (and a huge morale boost to all Americans). If this story was made up and distributed throughout the world, just think how powerful our government is at manipulating local and global events.

I workded in the U.S. Military branch of the Army for 6 years with a Top Secret security clearance. The information I am offering here can be found in any blog or print media focued on the lunar missions.

VP for Republican ticket for 2008 election


My opinion for John McCains is to choose Mike Huckabee as his VP running mate. If this was to happen, the general election would be a landslide in favor of the Republicans.

What do you think?

God Bless & Kind Regards,

Interesting Trivia

I was reading the 5/12/2008 Fortune magazine and found some very interesting bits of information that reflects the good / bad of the moment in history that we are living in.

-> Liberals think bad things about Big Oil and Big Gas companies. Their vision has been skewed thanks to the media. The real deal is that a major portion of those "evil" companies are owned by pension and IRA funds. So my opinion is that most liberals will count on Big Oil / Big Gas to retire. So making a new law that would tax profits is hurting everyone, regardless of political view.

-> One of the best funds to park your retirement money is Vanguard Wellington (VWELX).

-> Our old cell phones, old monitors, and old computers are being shipped to third world countries land fills. That is horribly wrong and needs to be corrected.
