- @solarce: "A spider farted in Finland and screwed up my IOPS!" -- @lusis #monitorama

Except it just doesn’t work.
- Food trucks are the cloud of the restaurant world. Dream friendly, flexible hours, low startup costs, making good money requires selling alcohol, and you can just pack up and move whenever you want. Oh, well, maybe not.
