What's with this defiantly crap in the last line? Which is it? Defiantly or definitely? Is the server grade hardware defiant or definite? And did customer grade hardware defy their survival in the early years? 

This is the kind of stuff I would expect on slashdot, but MaximumPC? Aren't we above this?

 There is a video on google going in further detail about it. If that link doesn't work just search for google server. Pretty sweet stuff.

:/ the engineer seemed like he really didnt know what was going on.  He was being asked the simplest questions and was baffled a few times.

How about "lift the vial of secrecy" in the article itself? Is this in D&D 4.5? Or maybe Get Smart?
