Underground sounds

Here in downtown London

When it gets dark and cold outside

The noise from the cars driving by outside subsides. No more honking and reving the engine. The last street sweeper is gone.

Doors aren’t slamming. The elevator stops going up and down.

The music stops bumping. No more dancing.

The party people quiet down. No more yelling and laughing. The last cigarette is put out. All the drinks are gone. Everyone has gone home.

Even the thoughts in your head are calm

You can hear the clickity clack of the underground subway trains passing through in the metro every few minutes.

It’s so surreal… you can’t be sure it’s even happening. But there’s no other explanation. It’s been there all day long but you never notice it until all the other background noise is gone.

BLOG: Ravello Network Performance

I recently got to try out the new Ravello on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure #RavelloOCI

Ravello Network Performance Introduction

I’ve been a long time network tester either as part of my day job or as a hobby. Upon getting a new computer upgrade I’d always want to measure the performance benefits against the previous version. I guess the same thing goes for cars too but that can be a little more dangerous, right? So I was excited when earlier this year a number of us vExperts…
