    Not good enough. Judgment Day is happening no matter what! The main focus is that John is kept alive to lead the resistance.

    Re: Google's Container Data Center

    I believe there is one of these in the Mid-America Industrial Park in Pryor, OK. I drove by it while visiting a customer/vendor located in that park. It was supposed to open earlier this year, but Google pushed back the opening because of the economy, which had the locals bummed because it was supposed to bring in 100+ jobs. Huge place...

    It amazes me how well google operates its business. I wonder how the economy has affected them. Probably not a ton. They seem to manage themselves with intelligence.

    Well they control the web, but I never realized how many of these sites they have. That building is fantastic. Would be a great company to work for. Looks like they have fun while they work as well.
