Not too long ago, I blogged about a Book called Daemon.  Freedom is the sequel to Daemon.

I enjoyed reading this book.  The story continues from Daemon, but in a largely different direction.  I like the direction the book took, for the most part.  I was hoping that there would be more tech talk and not so much of the sci-fi tek.  I liked the sci-fi tek, I just thought it would have been more down to earth to keep it closer to reality.

Daemon was scarily real.  The exploits were real, the danger seemed real.  In Freedom, I felt it made a big reach.  When looking at both books together though, it seems like a natural progression.

I like the plot.  The story culminates with a confrontation at a compound in Texas.  I really thought that the confrontation was a huge let-down.  I really expected more conflict at that point.  Everything was mounting to that, but the ultimate goal was to demonstrate that the group of people from the darknet still could think for themselves.

In the end, it was a good story.  I would like to have some of the technology.  I must also admit that Freedom was harder to put down than Daemon for me.  I found myself rooting in favor of the Daemon.  I started rooting for the Daemon at the end of the first book.

  • @SQLSoldier: @sqlboyarick Depends on storage. Multiple physical devices > 1 physical device > 1 physical device split up into multiple devices. #sqlhelp
  • @SQLSoldier: @IT_fas Those 2 things are mutually exclusive. http://t.co/QCwltewLdm #sqlhelp
  • @IT_fas: #sqlhelp: getting error 1418 when trying to configure db mirroring. Any idea. have done everything that is needed but still not working?
  • @sqlboyarick: #sqlhelp do you think very large databases are better off on one really big array or several files on different disks?
  • @bradk2127: #sqlhelp SSIS-get 1 column from Oracle table, multiple columns from diff Oracle table and load data into an oracle table - which transform?
  • @_dave705: @SqlrUs Sure, also the requirement is to update the existing rows once the import starts. #sqlhelp the are 4 different csv files to import.
  • @SqlrUs: @_dave705 BCP is an option, again depends on the requirements. I would test thoroughly first before deploying to Production. #sqlhelp
  • @__mandrew__: @SqlrUs @_dave705 I agree SSIS with a foreach loop is probably your best solution. PowerShell would work if u have the skillset. #sqlhelp
  • @SqlrUs: @_dave705 Depends. SSIS would be my first choice. Might be best to post a question on a forum & provide a link here. #sqlhelp
  • @RumblingDBA: Has anyone seen Logbuffer wait on SSD's? Can anything be done regarding it? I did not expect that wait on SSD #SQLHelp
