Linux Good Enough for NYSE Now

According to this article, the NYSE is now running Linux on all it's core systems.  This is really great news for a number of reasons. 

Going back a bit, you will recall that Microsoft actually bankrolled part of the SCO litigation? The logic was that the Linux legal FUD would help them. 

Alas, it seems to have gone a bit Pete for MS, with a tremendous backfire.  Far from being driven into the arms of Microsoft, the NYSE has sided with the devil and decided that a non proprietarty unix like operating system is what they wanted.

NYSE have moved around 600 HP servers (yes, 600) to Linux. 

Big Mac Eaters Beware! the £128 Burger Is Here!

Yes, not content with ripping customers off on the food, McDonalds have now started charging £125 if you spend to long eating it too.  And don't think you can get away with it.  McDonalds are using high tech number plate recognition devices to make sure you get lost within 45 minutes.  Of course they don't confront you in the store, they nab your details from DVLA and the first thing you know is when you get a letter weeks later asking for £125.

Oh, and McDonalds don't go soft either, the fine Rises to £213 if you don't pay.  Would you risk your house for a Big Mac.  Nope me either!

A spokesman for McDonalds said today: "If you don't like it, don't eat at our restaurants". 

TurboTas advises you to follow the tainted arches advice and go to Burger King, who still treat their customers like….. customers!
