Coffee, Tea, or Other Caffeine
I find it interesting (which might be more insight into my psyche than you want), but different caffeinated beverages tend to have drastically different effects on me. I'm curious if this is the case with others...
Coffee (black of course), is my standard "at work" beverage of choice. When I'm administering networks, delegating servers, or, most commonly, unjamming printers -- coffee is what I want to drink.
Tea (with sugar oddly enough) on the other hand is what I drink when I'm writing. Well, not right now, because I'm just on my lunch break at work, but if I'm really writing, tea makes me feel all creative and stuff. Oh, and Red Rose tea is by far the best "grocery store" tea.
Diet Coke, preferably from a fountain dispenser, is what I drink when I'm just downright thirsty. Or like now, when I'm eating lunch. It also give me the jitters, unlike coffee or tea. I'm not sure why.
So, your turn. What do you drink, and when? I'm not looking for on the job incrimination, I'm just genuinely curious.
(Oh, and water drinkers -- you can play along, but you only get street cred if you drink caffeinated water)

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
