Dumbest reason for data center downtime ever: smoldering mulch outside the building, a little bit of smoke infiltration, and a spazzy smoke detection system shuts down a whole data center. Who knew cigarettes could be a threat to your data center?

Best explain the cloud quote: from a lame quest to find the cloud, we get “There’s always hardware involved, and bricks and mortar. … It’s not a fluffy cloud. It’s living in someone’s building.”. Yeah!
