Thoughts on Super Bowl XLII

imageCongratulations to the NY Giants and NY Giants fans. Unbelievable showing!!!! Yes, the Giants looked possessed on defense but did the Patriots look like an 18-0 team? I have a theory on this; read on.? Regardless I could have cared less who won the game, neither team is my team and I did not have money on

the game, but everyone loves the underdog and frankly I am so freakin tired of the the Patriots. Congratulations to Eli Manning MVP of Super Bowl XLII. I would like to offer up that there should be a co-MVP or at least adefensive player of the game should be named… can

you guess who? image Gisele Bundchen co-MVP Super Bowl XLII  Maybe next year Tom Brady should leave Gisele at home. While she is not a bad trophy / consolation prize it may be a bit easier for Eli to share his trophy (The Vince Lombardi Tropy, shown here on the right) with the team and the fans. Congrats NY!

I was talking last week with a customer recently about power requirements in their co-location facility. I am sure it does not come as a shock to most that the biggest problem and cost facing data centers is not space but rather power. Despite all of our green efforts computer equipment continues to suck a massive amount of juice and I don’t think there is a realistic solution to this age old problem on the near-term horizon. Many data centers are aging and require a complete and costly retooling – Enter California Co-Lo(s), a wholly owned subsidiary of California Closets – Obviously I am joking but is this not a catchy idea :). At California Co-Lo(s) we have our eye on designing the green data center of tomorrow while incorporating organization, ascetics and a sense of style to accommodate even the most discriminating Metrotechie. Our data centers architects are certified Feng Shui practitioners so not only will your data center be green, economical, organized and stylish but California Co-Lo(s) invokes a sense of peace amidst the drab white backdrop, dull hum of equipment, blinking equipment lights, flickering florescent lighting, arctic temperatures and halon systems that comprise what we call the data center. Reach out an call one of out Co-Lo counselors. Could you imagine – LOL….
