    LOL. I love how the fact that 'Sweden is cold' can start off environmental debate on the first comment and carry it through 24 later. Isn't it also always cold at high elevation?

    I like how it's called a 'farm' too, even though they're not producing anything. Not just servers, or server array, or 'bunch' or 'group'. 'Farm' is definitely more trendy. Has a nice ironic quality to it using the same word for high tech servers as is used for the place most of the world's poor work to grow food. Reminds me of trendy fashion nowadays, and how people spend money to look poor by buying dull colored and bad fitting clothing.

    Okay so at what point does that attitude towards it end? Are you aware that people had the same attitude towards logging once and unfortunately Americans and the UK still do, and look what damage has been done there.

    I'd move them all to the northern pole, and leave them be there, tweet with seals, bears, to cool down and give the world a break from the viral plague they invented...

    With the load of bullshit as big to process, I fear it will melt the northern glacier.
