BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Early to say. Fellow who wants a conference call has a Phillipines datacenter, but replied from an email address with a singapore domain.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: philippines, eh. i'd consider africa before this. but tbf all i got is 3rd-hand rumour re what goes on there.
BingoBoingo: Well, trying to crawl all the space. If it is indeed some other sort of asian who tied himself to a physical operation in the phillipines, may not be as dire as a completely indigenous effort.
asciilifeform: thread on diana_coman's www of possible interest to current/prospective rack folx .
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: nuffin wrong, imho, w/ 'crawl all-the-space' .
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i've had interesting time getting to know the dc people. seems like just about all of'em at some pt had own biz, that sank, and they ended up as dc hands.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Could be this is the only way DC techs get hired?
asciilifeform: it's a fairly 'humane' , if not esp. lucrative, job to 'fall into.' they turn up for their shift, on typical day play tetris , etc. for N hrs, then go home.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: entirely possible
asciilifeform: i dun recall any boys who 'i want to be dc hand when grow up' when was small.
BingoBoingo: Then again, when I was small, no one really knew DC's existed
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: i dun recall any boy who 'i want to work the compressors at sewage filtration plant when grow up' either, and yet the latter existed, still exist, and 100% staffed.
asciilifeform: not all work 'sexy'.
BingoBoingo: Well hands at just about any industrial plant usually make more than 95% of folks sitting in white collar gigs
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: afaik tru, but strictly in industries where mistakes concretely threaten meatbag integrity
jurov: asciilifeform: first package arrived today
jurov: appears intact
asciilifeform: ty for update jurov . lemme know when you determine that contents are in order.

jfw: asciilifeform: will do.
