That would be for only one reason, they have new centers, and they are underground.

political correctness is a doctrine.... fostered by a delusional, illogical minority...... and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media; which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

For the slower ones among us like myself, what is the significance of this? And if they moved everything underground like some suggest, what is the significance of that? Any jobs lost, or just building space?

Thank you for the pin mods, this subject is one of the many confusing and mysterious dots that need clarification. Anyone care to speculate on a connection? I can't see the govt caring (that much) about the 3 billion it will supposedly save the taxpayers.

My Guess, they are giving Google the business.

[link to www.datacenterknowledge.com]

Google continues to invest heavily in its Internet infrastructure in the second quarter of 2011, recording capital expenditures (CapEx) of $917 million. Significantly, Google said some of the spending was for related to “land and building purchases” along with the usual data centers, servers, and networking equipment. While spending on buildings could be tied to Google’s expansion of its office space, vacant and purchases most likely reflect future sites for data centers.


Isn't it a wonderful world.

Please explain what you mean by that. I haven't done porn in a long time, but I heard Jay Wiender on Rense a few weeks ago warn people about going to porn sites. He made it sound like they mine info from you but didn't say how. So what's the story on that?

They can close because:

Self managed/owned data centers underground, not leased
They discovered linux and are walking away from crappy MS.

You obviously have no idea what it takes to run a data center. If you did, you would not say something so ignorant. I know what it takes. Don't talk out of your ass.
