  • Re: SOLO TRAILER!!!!! Memorial Weekend!

    New trailer dropped this week. Dialogue with Lando, Chewie, and a LOT more stuff.

    I think this is going to be a lot of fun:

    Youngest decided he wanted to listen to "We Will Rock You by Queen" (his exact words). So I naturally obliged.

    Dropped him off at the in-laws and blasted Queen all the way home.

    Then Under Pressure came on and I almost had to stop the car. I have always loved the song, and I consider it about as close to perfection as possible. But it just hit me in the perfect way last night, especially as it hit the peak. Even just thinking about it to type this, it triggered all over again.

    Finally got to see it yesterday afternoon. Whole family trip. Even the 4 year old dug it for the most part.

    I can't think of a single real critical thing to say about it. The story was solid. The performances were fantastic (Letitia Wright is one to look out for, Michael B. Jordan is really coming into his own, Lupita Nyong'o gets better every time I see her, I think Sterling K. Brown is solidly filling the void left by Isaiah Washington). Stylistically gorgeous. Tied in well with the MCU.

    For being a relatively minor character in the Marvel print universe, the amount of work they put into building such a rich world in this installment was wonderful to see.

    I'll probably give it another spin in the run up to Infinity War, as well.

  • Re: Moving servers soon

    The biggest thing to consider with NFS is the bandwidth between points. Any modern hardware will be able to handle some pretty heavy traffic over NFS, especially if it's doing just that (like a dedicated dumb file server). Unless you're getting super-crazy and doing massive segmentation over tens or hundreds of exports your only limit is going to be the inter-droplet bandwidth.
