This is a pretty cool, but aren't you charged for having this WAAWR application constantly deployed? It seems like a waste of a compute instance for something that won't be used all that often.
Edit: I watched a little bit further, and I think I have a better understanding of this. Does (or could) the WAAWR web application share the same web role instance with all the websites that it manages and deploys?
I figured somewhere in the upper reaches of California is where you had gone. Heck, you would have had a much shorter drive by flying into Eugene, OR and driving south than by flying into San Francisco and driving north.
BTW, that statue of Babe is more anatomically correct than it needs to be.
@cbae:To be fair to Jason, Paul does talk about hack/quack at 11:20ish, but I think it was just a joke. We all have open minds here (I'm sure).
You're right. After rewatching that segment, I now realize that there was indeed a mention of the word "quack", but I simply stated that I didn't recall the word being uttered. Maybe because it was the subtle way in which he said it. I don't think he was saying it any mean-spirited way though. Otherwise, I would have really would have remembered his saying the word "quack".
Uh, Paul, Redwood City is about 30 minutes south of San Francisco. It's home to a couple of companies you might be familiar with (given your knowledge about SQL and gaming): Oracle and Electronic Arts.
BTW, that 30 minutes is with no traffic. In reality, it may actually seem like 6 hours like you mentioned, but you got the direction incorrect.
