Yeah guys.. those are just our legacy data centers.. not the HQ. We're in the
HQ for the long haul.
Those of you who I got into the back-side of the mall saw that we're really
building out some of the larger spaces now.. for like 5 years out at least.
You don't just pick up and leave after a build out like that.
Plus.. we debated all the other places in the country like 8-10 years ago..
Austin, Silicon Valley.. North Carolina... We saw San Antonio as a place that
was out home, was disaster free, had cheap power, low cost of living.. and the
Founders wanted to stay here too.
No worries there..
BTW.. XCSSA just did a quick +1/-1 vote and it was unanimous.. we're going.
Looks like our Jan meeting will be there. I think Charles is doing another one
of his famous Xmas light demos. This year he's brought DMX lighting controls
into the mix:
Should be a hoot.. Jan 17th.. 7pm.. Rackspace! (more details.. next year.. :)
