    Good collection. I was seeing for this for long time. Actually, I used a software, called TODOlist, to record the category and good posts as the way you currently done. At first, I felt you missed the post of cost of amazon storage. Finally, I found it here "The Cost of Bulk Cold Storage ".

  2. Thanks for the comment and the correction Anirudh.

    Have been a devoted reader, thanks for this summarization. Super minor quibble, Under Software and Services, "Architecture of a Database System" is misspelled.

  4. Great hearing from you Tom and thanks for the feedback.
