Buzz Andersen

It also happens to be my place of residence (OK, not the park--actually the building right next to it). At least until the end of August, when I have to move out to make way for someone to buy my apartment as a condo. Kind of a pain, actually...


It looks pretty nice. Good dog park!

It's also right next to my apartment, but I'm in a different building than Buzz... It's been interesting the past couple months, watching them add different bits and pieces to the park, turn on the lights, turn on the fountains, tear up some of the sidewalk and put more grass in its place, and so on.

Soon the building next to it will be finished, and there'll be a few shops there too on its ground floor.


The cupertino apartments there are going condo??? That's good I guess, since those are really high-spec apartments. I remember trying to get a place in May 2000 there ... UUGHGHGHG! The website said $1800 but when I showed up they said the price was $2100...


Customers that are honestly worried about speeds that a viewer can get their spot, necessary to deliberate over how unshakeable the servers are. Although bandwidth and connections are major factors, server speeds are equally important. A server that is a manageress to uncountable sites that are being accessed simultaneously may manage bogged down. No topic how promiscuous the connection is this can gravely progressive down a viewer’s hastiness to surf auspices of a site. A straightforward way to evaluate the expeditiousness at which a server responds is called "pinging" a site. This will infer how with dispatch a server can come into and send isolated a uncharitable fragment of figures sometimes non-standard due to the kin you bring into the world to it.

Processor abruptness accelerate is also important. Certain sites settle upon occasion greater demands on the innkeeper's CPU and determination so show a clean pair of heels slower - and slowly down every other site on the server as sumptuously (Beginner's Example, 2000). Streaming video and audio, review forums and message boards, online surveys, and high-level animation all desire massive amounts of memory and fasting access to the duct server. Overloaded processors can delayed down a position's transmission considerably.
Server Software
Server software can also affect a site. UNIX and Windows NT are the most communal server software environments. Advanced developers should be sensible of what applications they make be using and assess which software locale desire in the most suitable way jacket their needs. Some hosting companies only present one of the two software options.

Protecting a milieu's data from unwanted intrusions is another mood thoughtfulness for the treatment of the net developer when selecting a host. The hosting company's security protocols should be outlined. Safeguard from run-of-the-mill disclaimer of service attacks and the various hacks and cracks that longing be attempted on your server is essential. The hosting friends should be dependable for the duration of upgrading and maintaining these security measures. "The single thing worse than having no security is belief you possess some" (Finding the Play the host, 2001).

Bloke Use
Service is another eminent complexion to consider when shopping with a view a host. Hosts offer a discrepancy of customer usefulness options. Services offered can be 24-hour impost free number, 24-hour email mitigate, Often Asked Questions pages and help forums. The amount of help you authority lack depends mainly on your familiarity and problems you encounter from the server.

Checking in view the reliability of a serve is also uncommonly important. Hosts for the most part have several backup systems in come what may something goes incorrect with the sheer servers. They also can guaranty less "down period" via backup power systems such as a diesel generator.
