The Berkshire Hathaway Meeting

Buffet says Berkshire's reinsurance business is recovering after enormous terrorist-related losses last year. However, he warned that asbestos liability could become a major problem for U.S. insurers. [Wall Street Journal]

We should get lots of feedback about the meeting early this next week. Wish I could have been there.

I'm back to 78% free!

As a way of saying thanks for all the good will coming our way in the last week, we doubled the storage allocation for Radio users from 20 to 40 megabytes. Thanks!  [Scripting News]

Thanks to everybody at Userland who pulled double and triple duty to square away the problems. As much as I (personally) appreciate the disk space, I think the CASE STUDY of the problem and the nature of the final resolution could be even more valuable to anyone involved in leading information technology projects or consulting others in the area of systems management.

If problems can't be completely prevented, what lessons can we take away from this experience (unfortunately at Userland's expense)? Can running a server be outsourced with less likelihood of a similar problem? Why or why not?
