    Morin showing his age.
    I haven’t seen a main-frame tape-drive since the ‘80s. As kids we used to have the cupboard housing of an obsolete one in our room [my elder brother was a mainframe support engineer, later a programmer].
    It had a handy glass window in the front and fans underneath to keep our clothes cool and visible. :-|


    The Ideal:
    A modern computer server room might look like this:



    Something like what our server room looks like:


    Google’s server rooms, what we all aspire to:


    I have no bone in your fight; you can imagine what your ACA’s server room looks like from the above examples. :-|

    I’ve been in computers since 1965, everything from computer operator on the old mainframes, programmer, network specialist and security specialist. My last gig was working for the government and why anybody wants the government to expand their reach is beyond me, the government is even more wasteful than I had ever thought. About 30% of the government employees do 90% of the work, the rest are dead weight and they’re all overpaid. As far as the ACA rollout, the government thinks it’s wise to have the people writing the code, doing beta test and debugging the code. That never works, the people doing beta test and debugging the code should have no idea how the internals of the program works.

    Cute. I hadn’t thought of that. Republiclans are endlessly inventive about sabotage.

    @jonesb

    I don’t understand your point. The web site was subcontracted to CGI Federal. Why can’t they also do their own testing and debugging?

    “Motin is an idiot. There is no way Obama will ever hire a Republican to his Staff.”
    You are projecting your idiocy, Pres. Obama has done that more than a few times.
