Mark Prior: Bye-Bye

I am a bit sad, and happy to see Mark Prior leave the Cubbies to sign with the SD Padres. He was a huge hope for Cub fans for some many years. I remember hearing folks say, “He is a once every 10 year type of pitching prospect”. He of course did not live up to that, took a tonne of money from the Cubs, and produced a lot of heartache for the fans.

I wish it woulda worked out better.

But I’m glad the wimp/SoCal baby is gone back to Mommy and Daddy. Maybe his name should have been in the Mitchell Report…

Kinda feels like if I got the hottest girl to date me for a few years in my late teens, but she got outta shape real quick into the relationship and stayed that way for like 5 years. If I dumped her, and then she got all fit again and starts dating my best friend, I’d be pissed cuz she was a train wreck while dating her. We’ll see if it plays out this way for the Cubbies/Fans.

Shopping Trip – Joke

A woman was in town on a shopping trip. She began her day finding the most perfect shoes in the first shop and a beautiful dress on sale in the second. In the third everything had just been reduced to a fiver when her mobile phone rang. It was a female doctor notifying her that her husband had just been in a terrible accident and was in critical condition and in the ICU. The woman told the doctor to inform her husband where she was and that she’d be there as soon as possible.

As she hung up she realized she was leaving what was shaping up to be her best day ever in the shops. She decided to get in a couple of more shops before heading to the hospital. She ended up shopping the rest of the morning, finishing her trip with a cup of coffee and a beautiful coffee slice complimentary from the last shop She was jubilant.

Then she remembered her husband. Feeling guilty, she dashed to the hospital. She saw the doctor in the corridor and asked about her husband’s condition. The lady doctor glared at her and shouted, ‘You went ahead and finished your shopping trip, didn’t you?! I hope you’re proud of yourself! While you were out for the past four hours enjoying yourself in town, your husband has been languishing in the Intensive Care Unit! It’s just as well you went ahead and finished, because it will be more than likely the last shopping trip you ever take! For the rest of his life he will require round-the-clock care. And you’ll now be his full time carer!’

The woman was feeling so guilty she broke down and sobbed. The female doctor then chuckled and said, ‘I’m just kidding. He’s dead. What’d you buy?’

SSD vs Memory

Server/computers are about to get a helluva lot faster.

See Burtons post on SSD versus Memory. I can’t find the old post on PhotoMatt, but he was trying todo the same thing with his laptop not too long ago. (I think)

I don’t understand every part of what Burton is talking about, but it seems to me, that servers and computers, if built like this would become waaaaaay faster.

What does this mean for computing and scaling web services? Cheaper. easier, faster. Makes sense, doesn’t it. Looks like this step might be a bit of a leap though versus the typical speed improvements from faster chips, HDD, memory and mother boards.
