Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

New S3 pricing

[ #33166 ]
Amazon has announced new pricing for its S3 service. It's long been a complaint that fixed pricing is a pain when you scale really high, and they have introduced a tiered service so that data transfer is cheaper as you transfer more. However they have also introduced a per-request charge, which punishes users serving small files. This is probably a response to "infinite disks" based on S3. It's nice that they've dropped data transfer a little bit, but isn't storage also cheaper since they released S3 a year ago? Anyway, the fall of the dollar is making this much cheaper for me than the new pricing is ;-)

  • Google keeps leading me to Astray. And Astray keeps leading me astray. And somehow I seem to track you down like the unemployed goofy American insomniac that I am. So, All I want to say this time is this. . . Spelt is a kind of wheat and it does in fact contain gluten. Some gluten sensitive people might be okay with spelt. Celiacs however should avoid this grain. I would give you the wikipedia link on spelt but I'm just too damn tired to find it again. Sincerely, Ms. Goto aka the woman who made moosewood mu
