Did thousands of those when I was an aspiring motocrosser. People don't realize that you have to be in peak physical condition to hang on to a couple hundred pounds of motorcycle for 30 minutes at a time. Regardless of your conditioning, at some point during a race when landing from a jump, one of your hands will lose its grip on the handlebars and you will scramble as fast as you can to find that grip. That is relief.

Hosting a porn site are we?

I doubt even the most lucrative porn sites have Oracle money.

By the way, I don't know how much they paid for that system, but here's a quote from a recent article.

"Finally, Oracle is still the only high-end server maker that publishes a price list for its systems, and it has done so for each and every generation of Exadata machines. You can see it here. A half rack of the Exadata X9M-2 (with four of the two-socket database servers and seven storage servers) using the HC hybrid disk/flash storage costs $935,000, and the half rack with the EF all-flash storage costs the same. So $1.87 million per rack. That cost is just for the hardware, not the Oracle database or RAC clustering software or any of the other goodies companies need to make this a Database"

Rode my bike to a friend who lives near this little lake in the picturesque historic town of Thurnau. From across the lake you can see the green sun umbrellas, that's where we were sitting enjoying our beers after a walk around the lake 😊🍻
