    EMC - , the world's largest independent storage company took the wraps off 41 new enterprise storage products at concurrent events in London and NY. As part of the launch they held a contest to see how many people they could stuff in a MINI. The answer is a world record setting 26. Interesting way to get the message across that you can stuff a lot of data into EMC's small servers.

    Haa, haa, ha!

    Although, I think I'd have an anxiety attack with all those people in there with me!

    Hah....
    EMC missed another opportunity in comparing the speed of their storage platform.

    What they should have done was to then drive the MINI to a store having a shoe sale. And then record the emptying speed.

    Hmmmm? Now about the sign-age and those lovely white suits. I can just visualize the Emerald MINI Car Club all decked out for local runs to the coast. Perhaps we could get a garage sale price!

    I think we'd have to put that one to a group vote :) Maybe for the Eugene Celebration? but we'd have to tie-dye them!

    Yikes Rae! I missed the tie-dye part. That will make the difference for sure....

    Pilobolus is a GREAT dance company, not to be missed if they perform in your area. The Pilobolus dance troupe is just 6 or 8 dancers. I guess they run a dance studio and those were 26 dance students.
