When Moonlight pulled a big upset and won the Best Picture Oscar a year ago, it felt like a monumental occasion—and not just because of the snafu that resulted in a different film briefly enjoying the honor. Yes, the Academy bestowed best-movie-of-the-year status on an actual, legitimate contender for the best movie of the year. That hasn’t happened too often over the 90 years the organization has been handing out awards. In fact, the Oscars often don’t just whiff on what deserves to win; they also frequently fail to even nominate the best movies, leaving some essential classic in the making out of the running entirely. With this year’s ceremony just days away, The A.V. Club has singled out 90 important, terrific, even canonical movies that weren’t nominated—one for every Best Picture lineup going back to the beginning. We’ve followed the Academy’s rules about what qualifies, which mainly means only selecting movies that opened in the … [Read more...] about Do the wrong thing: 90 years, 90 movies that should have been nominated for Best Picture
Best colocation hosting1. Netcetera2. Netwise Hosting3. Zen Internet4. Claranet5. Fast2hostRead on for our detailed analysis of each hostBuying a conventional hosting package allows customers to rent space on a server owned by a hosting provider, and located in a third-party data centre. These are good value and easy to access, but you don't get full control over the hardware and how it's set up. Even dedicated server plans force you to choose from what can sometimes be very few canned options.Colocation hosting is a service where customers just rent space in a data centre, and use that to host a server they own. This gives them complete control over the hardware and software configuration, while also ensuring the server has a more reliable infrastructure (power, cooling, fire, security) and better connectivity than they would get by hosting in-house.Hosting your hardware in another location does introduce some issues. If you need physical access to the server, you'll probably have to … [Read more...] about Best colocation hosting in 2018

This is arguably one of the most difficult posts I write each year. Not because it's a post with tough love (though there will be some of that), but because the scope, scale and implications for the market and for Salesforce make Dreamforce so difficult to analyze. While I'd like to say I'm prescient or absolutely certain of my conclusions or even that I am someone who has an inkling every now and then, I'm not really sure I'm that person. I do however, have a point of view, called so acronymically and elegantly by Ray Wang "My POV". My particular POV can be taken or left accordingly, but I will say what I have to say - and it will be interesting. Of that much I am certain. The substance of this post is going to be the direction that Salesforce seems to be taking, the things that are happening to Salesforce that they don't control that they would be even better off if they did, and the things I think they need to do to gain that control. But before I get into the substance, … [Read more...] about Livin’ the Dreamforce 2015: Can Salesforce seize the day?
