    Not to get off on a rant here, but on a serious note just the same, if the right flaming liberal ever gets in office, NASCAR going electric may just become a reality. This clown would love it. 

    I would like to beat the $hit out of him.

    Cut the boy some slack, he made it possible for us to have this forum. Plus, he didn't whine like Miss Pants Suit when he lost. By the way, can anyone tell me which man it was that we refused to tell to shut up when he lost the presidential race and whined like a little beeyotch? Maybe I am not old enough to remember. Please keep whining Hillary, at least until the November elections.

    Trump started whining about losing the "rigged" elections weeks before they were held.  I can only imagine how he would have aired his grievances if he lost.

    Maybe he would have whined, maybe not. November 2016 was a long time ago, and that shrill, bloated faced woman is still whining. I hope she is like that Energizer Bunny.

    Trump started whining 
    I think you meant winning =)
    Its what Trump does with every breath. He wins. If you doubt it, give Hillary a call and ask her who is President and who it was that kicked her a$$.

    Zero chance on the "maybe not".

    I’d run my 911 against that tin foil POS everyday and love it.  50:50.  And yes, it’s a turbo S.  Pretty car you pulled up.

    And 12 seconds faster around the Ring than a Porsche 911 Turbo S. :)

    NIO told me a great story about Big Switch Networks, for example. The challenge that NIO was having was getting overlay networking to work at scale on Kubernetes. IP space management was a huge challenge in particular due to the huge number of IPs associated with each container cluster. The company wanted a software-defined network that was integrated with the CNCF Container Networking Interface (CNI) standard so that it could have a flatter network architecture and automate IP space management and network space management. The problem was that this didn’t exist. Having identified the problem, NIO then worked with Big Switch to extend support for the CNI interface, resulting in a stable networking solution today in its platform.

    Can Big Switch Networks help my network speed in my bathroom with the door closed?  Asking for a friend...

    Dude.  I have no idea what you just wrote.  Glad there are peeps like you who understand this stuff.

    Your probably correct with the metaphor as NASCAR is accelerating down the ole sh*tcan just as the country will with a turn to the left  =).

    Well the odds of people’s grammar improving certainly do seem to be low.

    They should make it a giant slot car race......it would be about as exciting.

    I was shocked walking through the pits and there was a motorcycle with a power cord stuck in the gas tank. Formula E compete against each other and run with the 600s. I haven't ridden one yet, but they are on the road.
    It would solve the problem for local tracks which have noise complaints from those moving into the new subdivisions built next door.

    I wonder if they’ll have a sound box on them. NASCAR is built on that thunder.
