We Are Borg

Had some fun today. I finally got to tour the PHS server farm and control center at the Tigard Business Center. Paid a visit to PHS666 (name changed to protect the innocent), a server I've long used, but never seen. Just some box in a rack, surrounded by any number of boxes just like it.

GE came up in our meeting a lot. An IT guy said any GE employee found in possession of posters or screen savers of the Borg Cube with a GE logo on it, was summarily terminated. No sense of humor if true, and confirmation that the image is accurate.


The conference call with GE went well. Centricity sounds like it will meet our needs, at least in terms of hemodynamics being open to outside queries and all that. I'm glad we got to talk.
